At Sage Bionetworks, we believe that we can learn more by learning from each other. By improving the way scientists collaborate, we help to make science more reliable and effective. Making science more open, collaborative, and inclusive ultimately advances biomedicine.
Are you passionate about supporting research? Are you interested in helping researchers conduct ethical research with underrepresented populations? Do you want to develop strategies and tools to improve data privacy and informed consent? Are you the type of person who enjoys working across multidisciplinary teams that include computational biologists, research ethicists, software engineers, designers, and data librarians? If so, you could be our next Governance Associate!
What you’ll be doing:
- Work closely with external research programs such as the NIH All of Us Research Program, Sage-led mobile health (mHealth) research studies and other multi-institution collaborations for Institutional Review Board (IRB) submissions.
- Pre-review and prepare submissions (i.e. initial protocols, protocol amendments, adverse events and continuing reviews) for new and existing studies in a timely manner
- Ensure all study-related regulatory documents are maintained in a compliant and organized manner
- Collaborate and communicate within the governance team and across departments when needed
- Develop and maintain working relationships with research sites, research program leadership and possible funders
- Stay current with scientific/ethics/data governance literature and policy, and learn new human research protection and data privacy regulations as needed
- Handle potentially sensitive and confidential material
- May participate in collecting and analyzing data and/or preparing parts of a paper or presentation for a meeting, internal or external; occasionally represent Sage Bionetworks at public or scientific meetings
We’d love to hear from you if you:
- Have a BS or other equivalent scientific degree, health science, public health, and/or health education preferred
- Are experienced working with human-subjects research (observational and or interventional studies)
- Have knowledge of IRB regulations and types of study submissions (study protocol, Informed consent, study recruitment materials, etc.)
- Have solid planning, organization and problem-solving abilities
- Are able to support external/internal stakeholders on multiple projects concurrently
