Introducing the Foresite Fellows Program
By R. Scott McIsaac, Ph.D.
We are excited to introduce our new program – Foresite Fellows, a two-track program from Foresite Capital and our sister incubator, Foresite Labs. This is a twelve-week part-time paid internship program welcoming applicants who have a strong interest in biotech and healthcare innovation. Fellows will get exposure to biotech venture capital and venture creation activities, and will focus on landscaping, forecasting, and company ideation in key areas.
Over the past ten years, we have built a strong firm focused on backing the visionaries who are tackling the biggest issues in healthcare. We partner closely with our portfolio, lending support in all areas required to scale and grow a business. The time is right for us to bring on strong individuals who want to work alongside us, learn from us and put their academic and professional skills to work helping find and create the next generation of healthcare and life science leaders. Could this be you?
Fellows will work with Foresite for three months beginning in February 2022, with options to join the team full-time if there is a good fit on both sides. The expected work commitment is 8-10 hours per week. Fellows will work remotely from any location. Foresite Capital Fellows will receive mentorship from senior members of the Foresite investment team. Foresite Labs Fellows will receive mentorship from senior members of the Foresite Labs team. We are particularly seeking candidates who bring diverse perspectives and unconventional thinking to the table.
Applicants should be currently enrolled in PhD, MD, MD/MBA, MD/PhD, or postdoctoral fellowship programs. Preference will be given to candidates who are available for full-time employment by September 2022.
Apply here to be a Foresite Fellow. And please help us spread the word.
