The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research seeks a highly motivated and organized Portfolio Manager to coordinate and manage the Foundation’s portfolio of over 150 innovative cancer research projects, early-stage companies, and venture investment opportunities. Reporting to the Chief Scientific Officer, and working closely with the Principal, Venture Investments, the successful candidate will be an experienced, detail-oriented portfolio/project manager who has worked cross-functionally with scientists and business development teams in academia and/or biopharmaceutical companies. The Portfolio Manager will be ready to apply those skills to advance multiple scientific programs within the Foundation from initial funding and through to patient impact, including commercialization initiatives. This position represents an exciting opportunity to work with creative, motivated scientists and entrepreneurs both within and external to the Foundation, and to have a positive impact by managing the portfolio of projects that will enable discoveries, platforms, and therapies with the potential to transform the lives of cancer patients.

Since our launch in 2017, we have awarded over $120 million in grants to more than 60 institutions in the U.S., the U.K., and Europe and invested over $10 million in companies developing breakthrough therapeutics and diagnostics for cancer.
