At Alector, our mission is to harness the power of the immune system to cure neurodegeneration and cancer. Our team integrates experts in key biotechnology disciplines and is solely focused on developing cures for some of the most challenging diseases facing our society. We are supported on this mission by leading investors including OrbiMed, Polaris Partners, Google Ventures, Deerfield Management, Foresite Capital, Federated Kaufmann Fund, and many others. Among our strategic backers and partners, we are aligned with some of the most innovative pharma companies such as AbbVie, Merck, and Amgen.
We have a broad portfolio of innovative first-in-class programs that were all developed by our scientists. Would you like to drive Alector's portfolio and product development efforts - from research, through clinical development and into commercialization? Do you value leading interdisciplinary teams, where everyone has an independent voice and works together to create new therapies?
As Vice President of Portfolio and Program Management, youll report to the CEO and will spearhead product team leadership (PTL), portfolio management, program management (PM), and alliance management efforts across Alector's broad product portfolio. You will lead and organize cross-functional teams focused on the development of each program, driving alignment on product development strategy and objectives. This involves complete life cycle planning and new product growth opportunities, including technology improvements, companion diagnostics and supporting technology. Moreover, you will define our project management processes and tools to be used to ensure effective and efficient management of our programs from research to clinic to commercial. You'll manage alliances with existing external partners, enabling successful collaborations. You will be influential in guiding Alector's direction, and championing and developing Alectors culture.Duringthefirstyear,yourgoalswillinclude:
