Fundraising & Partnerships Lead role at the intersection of global health, technology, and open data


The Human Diagnosis Project (Human Dx) is a worldwide effort, created with and led by the global medical community, to build an open intelligence system that maps the steps to help any patient. By combining the collective intelligence of doctors with machine learning, Human Dx intends to help address one of the most challenging issues facing our society today: access to affordable healthcare.

Now the world’s largest open medical project, Human Dx is structured as a partnership between the social, public, and private sectors. Its partners include many of the nation's top medical boards, societies, academic centers (including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and UCSF), and financial supporters (including the MacArthur Foundation and Moore Foundation).


We are looking to further expand our team with exceptional people who possess a strong sense of social mission. The Team has included alumni from leading organizations (e.g., the World Health Organization, the White House, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore Labs, Lincoln Laboratory, Facebook, Amazon, McKinsey & Company, Goldman Sachs, the Blackstone Group, and IDEO) and academic institutions (e.g., Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley, Yale, Penn, Dartmouth, and McGill).


Our Community Discipline serves as the primary bridge to our external stakeholders (including the global medical, scientific, patient, technology, design, and press communities) by shaping and communicating the story of the Human Diagnosis Project.

While we initially view this as a part-time role, there is the opportunity for it to become a full time position.

Ideal candidates will:

  • Lead strategy and operations for grant development with foundations, philanthropists, governments, and academia.
  • Support partnerships with medical boards, medical societies, online physician communities, and academic medical centers.
  • Develop processes to manage and scale relationships, stakeholders, and partners.
  • Build the fundraising and partnerships team over time.

Ideal candidates have:

  • A bachelor’s degree (preferably higher) from a top-tier academic institution.
  • 5+ years related work experience in nonprofit fundraising, grantmaking, and/or partnership development.
  • Ability and desire to engage with multiple stakeholders across a variety of communities, industries, and functional backgrounds.
  • A commitment to service and a strong desire to help the underserved.
  • Experience working and thriving in early-stage organizations and/or other resource-constrained environments.
  • Capacity to perform complex work with a high attention to detail.
  • Eagerness to join a high-performance institution and continually advance their knowledge and skills through self-reflection and feedback.


San Francisco or Washington, D.C. In exceptional circumstances, remote work will be considered after several months of working together in-person. However, our strong preference is for candidates who can be based permanently in one of these regions.
