Summary The Centre for Trials Research (CTR) at Cardiff University is the largest group of academic clinical trials staff in Wales, and has earned full UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) registered status. The Centre tackles the big diseases and health concerns of our time, including growing resistance to antibiotics, early cancer diagnosis and how to eliminate health inequalities. It achieves this by forming partnerships with researchers and building lasting relationships with the public, whose participation is essential for the success of studies. An opportunity has arisen to join this UKCRC-registered trials unit as a Research Associate, contributing to the delivery of the following study: 'Inside the Black Box: An Ethnographic Examination of Nurses' Professional Judgement in Nurse Staffing Systems in England and Wales', led by Professor Davina Allen.
