Position Description:
As one of the premier providers of modern medicine to the Los Angeles area and the nation, UCLA, is home to leading medical facilities and world-renowned physicians. The mission of UCLA Neuroscience, one of six major research themes within UCLA Health Sciences, is to develop and foster visible concentrations of excellence in basic and interdisciplinary neuroscience at UCLA. As a campus-wide initiative, the UCLA Grand Challenges connect faculty, students and supporters from all disciplines, working together to solve critical issues. As an integral part of UCLA Neuroscience, the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge (DGC) aims to cut the burden of depression in half by 2050. As the Director of Development for the Depression Grand Challenge and Neuroscience, your drive and zeal for fundraising will significantly impact the ability of those leading the Grand Challenges to further their holistic approaches to research and bring passionate participants together to dream big and think about what can be achieved with sights set on common goals.

In this role, you will help plan and implement a fund-raising program to increase support for all elements of UCLA Neuroscience, including the Depression Grand Challenge. As the Director of Development, you will assist with major gift fund raising, proposal writing, and working with faculty, administrators, and volunteers. You will personally identify, cultivate, solicit and steward major gift donors and manage a portfolio of major gift prospects with a focus on building diversity in their donor portfolio where possible. You will also work with volunteer and/or advisory boards in support of fundraising programs and initiatives. In addition, as the Director of Development, you will also assist in the design and implementation of gift strategies and integrate efforts, maintaining close working relationships with the Depression Grand Challenge Executive Committee and other related volunteers to the Neuroscience Theme. As a member of UCLA HSD, you will become part of a dynamic, collaborative and innovative team that offers long-term opportunities for professional development and growth as part of our robust External Affairs enterprise serving UCLA.
