Thrive Scholars is looking to recruit an experienced and effective Program Director, who will lead the development and implementation of our new Life Sciences Career Pathway. In this inaugural role, the Director will ensure that interested Scholars are equipped to excel in the life sciences field, including in roles within biotech, research, pharma, diagnostics, health careers, and more.
At the onset, the Program Director will have the opportunity to shape the design of the new Life Sciences focused career development curriculum that will be embedded within the holistic six-year Thrive Scholars program. The goal of this curriculum is to ensure that Scholars gain relevant experiences, knowledge, and skills to support their career success in this field. Once the track is launched, beginning in fall 2021, the Director will oversee the Life Sciences programming and will also directly provide tailored individual career support to a caseload of Scholars within the Life Sciences track.
In this role, you will be able to bring together your expertise of life sciences career paths, your skills in program and project design and implementation, and your rapport-building and coaching abilities, to create and deliver a transformative career development experience for our Scholars.
The Program Director, Life Sciences Career Pathways, can be based in Los Angeles or Boston and will report to the Senior Director of Career Development.
Post-COVID, this role will include occasional academic-year travel and potentially up to 1 week of work in Los Angeles or in Amherst, Massachusetts during our Summer Academy.
