Director, Clinical Operations

| Santa Monica
About the Director of Clinical Operations @ Headspace:
Headspace is looking for an exemplary clinical operations lead to oversee clinical research and support the Health and Science Team in helping achieving the mission of Improving the Health and Happiness of the World. 

You have a passion for tackling the unknown and working to creatively answer questions that haven’t been explored. You gain energy from working with people and enjoy being at the center of all aspects of a project. You enjoy bringing people together to work toward a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. You’re an effective communicator and balance thoughtfulness and speed in your responses.

You’re an experienced scientist or physician dedicated to high quality clinical research and know how to design and execute a rigorous clinical trial. You have devoted your career to evaluating evidence-based interventions and bringing them out of the research lab and into the world in a safe, effective, and scalable way. You care about efficacy, clinical excellence, patient-centered care, and scientific rigor. Perhaps you’ve had experience with clinical research trials through an academic research role or come from industry. If this sounds like you, we’d love to meet you. 

How your skills and passion will come to life at Headspace:

  • Oversee and manage investigator and company-initiated clinical trials with Headspace’s clinical products to the highest scientific, regulatory, and clinical standards 
  • Engage and manage key opinion leaders to advise clinical strategy
  • Select and manage Clinical Trial Vendors (CROs, 3rd party Vendors)
  • Liaise with key stakeholders across the healthcare sector including patient advocacy organizations, professional organizations, payors, clinicians, and governmental groups
  • Lead and create clinical operational processes that result in compliant ICH/GCP standards, clinical development plans, protocols, procedures, and other appropriate resources
  • Develop and manage links with academic institutions to foster research opportunities and evidence based practice
  • Draft scientific documents to support regulatory reports and submissions
  • Monitor review and summarize clinical trial data from ongoing studies
  • Be a leader at Headspace while embodying Headspace's core values - selfless drive, courageous heart, and curious mind

What you’ve accomplished:

  • Doctoral degree with clinical research background preferably in behavioral health
  • 10+ years work experience with 4-6 years of research experience and at least 3 years of drug development experience
  • Experience working with and managing principal investigators on NIH-funded research studies or high impact industry clinical trials
  • Deep understanding of clinical research process, GCP and ICH standards.
  • Experience managing Clinical Research Organizations and Clinical Trial Vendors
  • Passion for healthcare and the mission that technology serves in creating value for the healthcare ecosystem 
  • Experience with mHealth trials is desired
  • Eligible to work in the US
  • Be willing to work out of our Santa Monica office–this is not a remote position

How to get started: If you’re excited by the idea of seeing yourself in this role at Headspace, please apply with your CV and a cover letter that best expresses your interest and unique qualifications.
