Proven leadership in both venture capital investing and venture creation: Founded in 2002, 5AM Ventures is an early-stage biotech venture firm leveraging both venture creation (building biotech companies from scratch) and venture capital (leading syndicated venture capital deals) to bring new medicines to patients. 5AM leads syndicated seed and Series A investments in early stage companies, and our 4:59 initiative founds new biotech companies around scientific breakthroughs. 5AM Ventures has offices in San Francisco, CA and Boston, MA, and approximately $1.5B under management.

Bringing new medicines to patients is our North Star: Companies that 5AM has founded and built have had more than a dozen regulatory approvals. We build companies to transform patients’ lives.

Hands-on approach: Beyond leading investments and contributing as board members of our portfolio companies, our team is directly involved in strategy, management recruiting, business development, fundraising, and various other operating roles in our companies. 

The 5AM Fellowship opportunity: The 5AM Ventures Fellowship provides an exclusive opportunity to gain experience in both venture creation and venture capital. We commit to supporting the careers of our fellows, and past fellows have successfully transitioned to full time positions in venture capital, business development, and healthcare consulting.

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. 

Job Requirements: 

The firm is looking for an individual with strong scientific or medical background (MD and/or PhD) e.g. PhD students, MBA students with relevant experience, postdocs, clinical fellows.
