The TBRS Community is Seeking a Science Director


20 hours per week, remote contract work with occasional travel, $50/hour. This is a consultant position with purpose – the chance to improve the lives of people with a rare disease. Working with our collaborative network of clinicians and scientists who study Tatton Brown Rahman Syndrome (TBRS), the Science Director will advance research toward understanding and treating TBRS. At the TBRS Community we offer a supportive, inclusive environment where staff, consultants, and volunteers can apply their talents to make a difference in others’ lives.

About Us

The TBRS Community is a nonprofit organization that supports individuals with Tatton Brown Rahman Syndrome and advances research on this rare disorder. With the ultimate goal of identifying treatments and cures for TBRS, our organization created the TBRS Community Collaborative Research Network (TBRS CRN), a group of scientists, clinicians, families, and other stakeholders who are experts on TBRS and DNMT3A (the gene that causes TBRS). The TBRS CRN members collaborate by sharing their expertise and resources with the aim of expediting treatment development for TBRS.

Our Values

The TBRS Community is committed to developing a supportive, inclusive, and collaborative network of families, clinicians, researchers, and other stakeholders. We serve the patient above all else. As a patient-led organization, we listen to our patient community, keep their priorities at the center of our work, and develop programming to support their needs. We have a compassionate culture within our community, united by our shared experience of loving people with a rare disease.

The Opportunity

As Scientific Director you will provide visionary leadership for our scientific efforts, with a focus on translational research. You will collaborate with the TBRS CRN Members to facilitate patient-focused research, identify and strengthen collaborations with academic institutions and biopharma, and identify pathways to treatment for TBRS. These efforts will chart a course along our research roadmap to ultimately result in clinical trials for TBRS. Presently, there are no therapeutic options in development for TBRS. Our CRN Members have made tremendous strides in understanding the clinical presentation of TBRS and its underlying etiology, which has positioned us to now take the next step toward pursuing therapies. The Scientific Director will lead us into this exciting new phase of research.
