Frazier Life Sciences, based in Menlo Park, California, is seeking exceptional candidates for its annual paid Summer Associate program. Founded in 1991, Frazier is a leading healthcare-focused investment firm with nearly $4.8B in total capital raised. The Frazier Life Sciences team focuses on venture capital investments in biotechnology companies developing novel therapeutics. Investments range from helping to create companies spun out of leading-edge science in academic labs, to participating in public financings where decisions need to be made within 24 hours of learning about a deal.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with interest in biotechnology to join our team for 10 weeks in the summer of 2021 (although there is flexibility in both duration and starting date of the internship). Our goal is to teach our Summer Associate all aspects of the process of venture capital investing, from initial pitches and subsequent technical due diligence to term sheet negotiation and completing legal documents. We also aim to significantly expand our Summer Associate’s expertise in drug development, including through weekly seminars led by our partners, advisors, and other members of our team.
Given the medical/scientific nature of our work, a technical background (particularly students currently enrolled in M.D. or Ph.D. programs) is preferred, although prior working experience in biotechnology or management consulting may also be acceptable. Our team is small, nimble, and highly communicative, and we are similarly looking for a Summer Associate with outstanding self-motivation and communication skills
