The Role:

The Senior Manager of R&D Documentation and Training will be responsible for the archives at Life Edit Therapeutics, Inc. for paper-based and electronic documents and specimens related to R&D, GLP and/or GMP activities conducted by the company, which may be housed in the archive room at Life Edit, at GLP or GMP service providers or third party commercial research, GLP or GMP archive facilities.

With regard to GMP activities, in addition to ElevateBio activities, Life Edit manages third party contract manufacturers for development and GMP manufacturing. Life Edit may also test clinical samples for research purposes, where HIPAA and informed consent in accordance with GCP must be adhered to. 

Here’s What You’ll Do:

  • Establish and maintain as needed internal archives for orderly storage and expedient retrieval of all raw data, documentation, protocols, specimens, and interim and final reports in a manner that minimizes deterioration of the documents or specimens in accordance with the requirements for the time period of their retention and the nature of the documents or specimens.

  • Manage access to the archive room for only authorized personnel.
  • Should a facility conducting nonclinical testing with Life Edit as the sponsor go out of business, notify the FDA of the transfer of all raw data documentation and other material stored at the facility to the archives of Life Edit.
  • Maintain a current summary of training and experience and job description for each individual engaged in or supervising the conduct of a nonclinical laboratory study, and ensure their archival.
  • Serve as the go-to expert in navigating electronic systems for training and documentation, ensuring applicable procedures, GMP, GLP and GCP requirements are followed.
  • Coordinate updates / communications into the Management Review process regarding Life Edit documentation and training metrics, escalation items / issues and changes.
  • Facilitate and drive the establishment of role profiles, training curricula and training items by working closely with managers and learners.
  • Support the standardization of processes and communication(s) to build efficiencies within the ElevateBio ecosystem.
  • Proactively seek out opportunities for organizational and operational improvement, influencing within Life Edit Technical Operations and ElevateBio Basecamp Quality Systems for change (e.g., compliance, team structure, processes, communication, etc.).
  • Support internal and external audits with regard to acting as a subject-matter expert on Life Edit’s documentation and training approach and retrieving materials from archive.



  • Bachelor’s Degree required. Degree in a Life Science, Chemistry or related discipline preferred.
  • 5+ years of experience working in a biotech or pharmaceutical environment
  • 2+ years of experience working with R&D, GLP and/or GMP documentation and/or training systems in biomedical industry. Cell/gene therapy preferred.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills with ability to build professional relationships with external and internal stakeholders a must

  • Attention to detail and accuracy with respect to internal and external reporting
  • Strong understanding of GLP and/or GMP regulations and guidelines related to documentation and training (US and EU preferred)
