Dear All:

Building on my recent note about a search for the G20 secretariat lead, we now have CARB-X getting into job creation mode by posting 8 positions across 5 different job openings:

  • Accelerator Lead: coordinates the work of the growing accelerator network for all CARB-X-funded companies.
  • Support Team Lead (three positions): takes responsibility for managing the full range of support capabilities for 10-15 biotech and pharma companies in the Powered by CARB-X portfolio.
  • Director of Finance and Compliance: coordinates multiple partners and sub-grant recipients to ensure financial operations are in line with plans, plays a critical role in budget forecasting and planning processes, and more.
  • Project Manager: plays a critical role in the planning and execution of the funding cycles and coordination of pre-award and post-award activities.
  • Cycle Lead (two positions): takes full ownership of $20-50M funding Cycles from the preparatory stages through the three step application process, leading to the selection of a dozen or more additional companies for milestone-based awards.

As you hopefully already know, CARB-X began mid-2016 to award more than $455 million for research over a five-year period. I recently wrote about their search for new accelerators and it is good to see this continued expansion of their team. As one of the largest public-private research partnerships in the world. CARB-X is building an extraordinary pipeline of AMR-focused projects. If one of these opportunities intrigues, please check out the complete job postings online.

All best wishes, –jr
