Do you enjoy laying out the pieces of a scientific story so that non-scientists 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 assist in preparing and implementing international human subjects research protocols to allow us to execute our wide variety of projects while prioritizing the interests of our research participants and customers. Our research program is incredibly dynamic and we are looking for someone who would enjoy the challenge of doing things right while keeping up with the pace of a Silicon Valley company.

The successful candidate will possess the following:
Ph.D. in a biomedical science

Experience writing human subjects protocols, conducting human subjects research and working with IRBs (experience conducting research in non-US countries a plus)

Excellent communication skills, both written and oral

Ability to independently set and meet deadlines

Good working knowledge of statistics and modern human genetics concepts

Ability to work in a dynamic environment with individuals of diverse backgrounds

Please submit a writing sample, such as a scientific publication or grant proposal, of which you were a primary author.
