Site Services is a multi-disciplinary group at Genentech that focuses on making great work possible. Departments include Security, Facilities, Environment, Health & Safety, Work Environments, as well as Design & Construction. 

Neighborhood Work Environments (NWE) is a relatively new group with the Site Service’s Workplace Effectiveness Department that is responsible for helping to evolve the way we work at Genentech. We’re designing a new way to approach the work environment that inspires breakthroughs, nurtures collaboration, and supports choice by leveraging technology, supporting team interactions, and providing greater variety of places to work.

Neighborhood Work Environments are comprised of three elements: social, technology, and places. As part of “places,” attention to the quality of the physical environment at the time of delivery (day 1) as well as how it is maintained overtime is a key area of focus. This work is complemented by a related assessment of shared, high-traffic areas across campus (i.e lobbies, conference rooms, break rooms, mail/copy rooms) to see where we can improve the overall design quality of the campus. 

  • Develop a checklist to assess the condition of selected NWE projects already in place. Are they being maintained as designed? Are they being used as designed? Are there design changes that could be considered to keep the area clean, neat and welcoming? (Note: Photos and text will be used to document the assessments.)
  • Develop a checklist to assess the condition of public (i.e. lobbies, amenities) and shared spaces (i.e. conference room, team rooms) in selected buildings. Overall, does the building look neat, clean and welcoming? Are there areas that need attention? Pilot assessment in select buildings. 
  • Develop concepts for upgrades or redesigns of existing Public Spaces in select buildings on campus. Emphasis on capturing spaces that are underutilized and/or spaces that could be developed for better collaboration, small meetings, etc.
  • Create an “on the ground” summary of the physical environment from both a client’s point of view, as well as a team member’s point of view, in order to highlight opportunities to improve the NWE program
  • Provide project coordination support on the delivery of 1-2 projects, as needed. Tasks may include a range of activities from measuring to presentation development

2/20/17 Intern - Product Development - Global Data Standards Manager Entry Level South San Francisco, California

The Genentech Global Data Standards Manager (GDSM) Intern Program is an intensive 12 month opportunity introducing Interns to the dynamic, exciting world of Clinical Data Standards. 

On 17 December 2014, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a binding guidance for industry that mandates the use of Industry clinical data standards (e.g.: CDISC standards (Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium) for electronic submissions of clinical trial data. The mandate became effective on 17 December 2016, hence the increasing need for our company to support various functions in our organization with the adoption and implementation of these standards. 

As an intern, you will be joining the Data Standards Office (DSO) group, which is part of the Product Development Biometrics group. DSO is a small global group (<20 representatives) responsible for the design, management and maintenance of clinical trial data standards from protocol to submission aligned with the CDISC industry standards. The Data Standards Office plays a pivotal role in ensuring our Company complies with the new FDA requirement for electronic submissions. In addition to meeting regulatory requirements, our CDISC-aligned clinical data standards make it possible to collect data consistently across our clinical trial which accelerates data analysis, greatly facilitates the pooling of data across trials, and makes it easier to share data in a seamless and transparent way for both internal and external use.

Bringing new drugs to market with the potential of making a significant improvement in patient’s lives is contingent on the outcome of controlled human clinical trials that statistically prove both the safety and efficacy of new drug candidates. It is also contingent on our ability to comply with new regulatory requirements.

As a Global Data Standards Manager in the DSO, you will contribute to the design, management and maintenance of clinical trial data standards with a focus on electronic lab and biomarkers data standards. You will support cross-functional representatives in the Product Development organization with the adoption and implementation of the lab and biomarker standards in their clinical trials. You will also help maintain the standards in a metadata repository to ensure it continuously reflects latest approved data standards. You may serve as a Global Data Standards expert resource in lab/biomarker implementation projects/initiatives.  

Genentech GDSM Interns may be considered for full-time employment in the Data Standards Office as opportunities present.
Target start date: Jun-2017
12 months full time internship
