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 ProgramSage-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

About Sage Bionetworks

Sage Bionetworks is a nonprofit biomedical research and technology development organization that was founded in Seattle in 2009. Our focus is to develop and apply open practices to data-driven research for the advancement of human health. Data-driven research has become an important component of biomedicine, but it’s not always easy to understand how to apply computational approaches appropriately or how to interpret their results. Sage believes open practices can help. Our interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers work together to provide researchers access to technology tools and scientific approaches to share data, benchmark methods, and explore collective insights, all backed by Sage’s gold-standard governance protocols and commitment to user-centered design. Sage is supported through a portfolio of competitive research grants, commercial partnerships, and philanthropic contributions.

Sage embraces diversity, equity and inclusion. We are committed to pay parity and making our salary ranges available to all employees. We invite you to apply and we welcome a conversation. We are based in Seattle, WA, and collaborate broadly throughout the world.
