Do you enjoy laying out the pieces of a scientific story so that other people can understand it? Do you feel that regulation makes sense, but only when it’s sensible? Are you motivated not only by getting things done, but by making sure they’re done right? Do you think the operational part of “human subjects” is “human” and not “subjects”?
In addition to being one of the biggest players in the direct-to-consumer genetics world, 23andMe is also performing cutting-edge research on an unprecedented scale. We are looking for an experienced scientist to work with our research team to help develop and execute creative yet rational solutions to complicated regulatory issues. This individual would help prepare regulatory submissions, design and perform experiments to support FDA submissions, and develop IRB protocols that allow us to execute our wide variety of projects while prioritizing the interests of our research participants and customers. We are always pushing the envelope and are looking for someone who wants to do the same and is good at executing change.
The successful candidate will possess the following:
Ph.D. in a biomedical science (an advanced degree in genetics is a plus)
Experience conducting human subjects research and working with regulatory bodies such as FDA or an IRB (could include designing, performing, or documenting the relevant protocols)
Excellent communication skills, both written and oral
Good working knowledge of statistics and modern human genetics concepts
Ability to work in a dynamic environment with individuals of diverse backgrounds
Ability to independently set and meet deadlines
Please submit a writing sample, such as a scientific publication or grant proposal, of which you were a primary author.
