5AM Ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm focused on building and investing in next-generation life science companies. Founded in 2002, the 5AM team takes a focused, hands-on approach to company building. In addition to leading investments and contributing as board members of its portfolio companies, 5AM is directly involved in company strategy, management recruiting, business development and fundraising and often takes short-term operating roles. In addition, 5AM has started ‘4:59’, an internal initiative focused on canvassing areas for science that may be ripe for building new companies. 5AM Ventures has offices in San Francisco, CA and Boston, MA, and approximately $1B under management.
We are seeking a Fellow who can assist the 4:59 and 5AM teams with
1) reviewing new insights in prioritized areas of science to craft an investment thesis,
2) supporting scientific detailed diligence (e.g. research and talking to academics, KOLs), and
3) supporting new company formation activities with a focus on the scientific strategy.
Time commitment will be 20+ hours/ week, for 6 months.
The firm is looking for an individual with strong scientific or medical background (MD and/or PhD) e.g. Post-docs, medical residents or fellows.
