About the role:
You will provide expert project management support for two to three Global Alliance for Genomics Health (GA4GH) work streams. In addition to supporting the assigned work streams, you will be expected to represent GA4GH at the national and international level, and represent GA4GH projects, teams, and initiatives in international collaborations and national genomics programmes.
Responsibilities include strategy development and implementation and programme management of several international task-teams and knowledge exchange projects from concept development through to external communications and continued development.
You will play a critical role in setting the goals and priorities of these groups, as well as the GA4GH Executive and Steering Committee.
About the team:
GA4GH is an international alliance formed in 2013 to accelerate the potential of research and medicine to advance human health. Bringing together hundreds of contributors working in healthcare, research, patient advocacy, life science, and information technology, the GA4GH community is working together to create policy frameworks and standards to enable the responsible, voluntary, and secure sharing of genomic and health-related data. Learn more at www.ga4gh.org.
GA4GH is supported by four international hosts: the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the Wellcome Sanger Institute, EMBL-EBI, and the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR). Eight technical and policy framing teams (“GA4GH Work Streams”) drive the standards development work to meet the specific needs of real world clinical and genomics data sharing projects. GA4GH Work Streams collaborate with Driver Projects—genomic data initiatives that help guide our development efforts and implementations of our products.
Whilst the developments around COVID-19 continue to evolve, the Wellcome Genome Campus is closed for all but essential functions and facilities.
People remain at the centre of everything that we do and the majority of our staff are now working remotely to ensure continuity of operations, making use of remote communication and collaboration tools.
Interviews will be taking place virtually and the successful candidate should expect to be fully supported through remote on-boarding and working from home until the Campus re-opens to all staff. This approach may vary for individuals located overseas and/or where a visa is required and starting will be based on a number of factors, we will be able to provide specialist advice to those affected candidates
