Job Application for Science Program Manager, Open Science at Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

“Our mission is to support science and technology that will help make it possible to cure, prevent, or manage all diseases by the end of the century. Interdisciplinary teams of physicians, biologists, computational scientists, and engineers can expand our understanding of the human body and illness — the very science behind medicine. CZI fosters collaboration between scientists and engineers, develops tools and technologies, and builds support for basic scientific research. 

Open science—the practice of sharing data, methods, software, and results in the open in a timely and effective manner, so that other scientists have the ability to learn and build on them—is core to our vision. We believe open science is key to empowering more people to engage in research and accelerate the pace, robustness, and reproducibility of science. In order to achieve this goal, we will invest in platforms and initiatives that can shift incentives and culture in scientific communities towards early, open sharing and collaboration. 

We are supporting the scientific open source software ecosystem through a dedicated grant program (EOSS), as well as in-house software development through our software engineering and computational biology teams. We are supporting large-scale open data initiatives like the Human Cell Atlas, a global project to create a complete reference map of all the cells in the human body. We have invested in platforms like bioRxiv and Protocols.io to accelerate sharing and linking of research outputs and we are building Meta, a biomedical research discovery service.

As a Science Program Manager for Open Science, you will drive the execution of open science initiatives in the scientific communities CZI serves. You will manage and assist the development and operations of grant programs to support open science, including programs in progress, planned, or future programs to be developed. You will coordinate closely with the rest of the CZI Science team and the external community. You will be a public advocate of CZI’s mission and our priorities in open science and you will contribute to shaping our strategic directions in this area. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of open science practices, how open source software, open data, and collaborative platforms are used in science, and how open communities function….”
