The San Francisco State Institutional Review Board (IRB) needs an unaffiliated, community member to serve as the non-scientist member of the IRB that reviews and approves all human subjects research conducted on our campus.
The unaffiliated member should not be affiliated with SFSU however, retired personnel and student alum are eligible.
The following is a description of the scientist/non-scientist from the regulations:
Members whose training, background, and occupation would incline them to view scientific activities from the standpoint of someone within a behavioral or biomedical research discipline should be considered a scientist, while members whose training, background, and occupation would incline them to view research activities from a standpoint outside of any biomedical or behavioral scientific discipline should be considered a nonscientist.
