REB Member — WCG

REB Member

WCG IRB is recruiting new members to serve on our Canadian research ethics board.  This role involves analyzing and presenting human research protocols at Board meetings to facilitate informed decision making, and to lead discussion for all Board members.  Members with a scientific background often focus on the scientific concepts in the protocol while members with a non-scientific background often focus on the informed consent process and other ethical aspects of the research.  Generally, we expect Board members to participate in at least one meeting per month.  Preparing for meetings can take 4 – 10 hours depending on the content of the meeting.  Meetings are held on Thursdays (8:30 AM Pacific Time) and usually last around two hours.  All meetings are conducting using zoom, and we provide access to meeting materials using a web-based system.  Initial and on-going training are provided.  We provide a stipend for board meeting attendance.

Interested individuals are encouraged to send their CV to the Executive REB Chair at KFitzGerald@wirb.com.
