IRB Educator (Compliance Specialist 4)

The Pennsylvania State University seeks a highly motivated and experienced professional to serve as the IRB Educator in the Office for Research Protections (ORP). Reporting to the Education, Quality, and Integrity Program (EQUIP) Director, the IRB Educator will design, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of IRB training University-wide.

As part of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research, the ORP supports Penn State's active research enterprise. With nearly $1 billion in annual research expenditures, Penn State ranks in the top 25 of the nation's public research universities. This position is fully remote and will require very occasional travel for on-site professional development or training delivery.


Primary responsibilities:
  • Design, implement, and evaluate the effectiveness of the University-wide IRB education program. The Educator is responsible for synchronous and asynchronous training opportunities for existing and in-development IRB-related processes and systems, from introductory training to in-depth researcher training.
  • Assess future training needs and requirements for both IRB processes and systems; assist in the development of system documentation, communication, and support materials; and serve as a conduit among end users, the Human Research Protection Program (HRPP), and the Centralized Application Tracking System (CATS) team.
  • Assist with the development of communications and outreach for the ORP and HRPP, including the newsletter, website, and potential special projects.

The IRB Educator will work closely with the HRPP and the CATS team in the Office of Research Information Systems.

As part of EQUIP, the IRB Educator will work with and back-up the other ORP Educators. This position will have the opportunity to contribute to additional educational offerings for the research community and may participate in other initiatives. May hire, train, supervise, and/or evaluate assigned staff.


This position will be filled as a level 4; typically requires a Bachelor's Degree or higher plus six years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
  • Experience developing and delivering remote training required.
  • IRB knowledge or experience strongly preferred.
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills and the ability to summarize and convey technical information to a lay audience critical.
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office expected.
  • Knowledge of training delivery software and/or website content management useful.
  • Exceptional professionalism and proven effectiveness as a communicator, with a strong customer-service orientation, required.
