Why Medical Sciences?

Oxford is one of the world's leading biomedical universities recognised for its outstanding quality and depth across the medical research spectrum - from genes to molecules, to big data and populations. With the honour of 12 Nobel Laureates over its long and distinguished history, the Division is consistently at the forefront of innovative and lifesaving science.

Their researchers work across the full range of biomedical and clinical sciences, from the molecule to large population studies. The excellence of our research is recognised by our top placing in international league tables.

The extraordinary depth and breadth of medical skills at Oxford is devoted to identifying the causes of disease, improving diagnosis and developing effective treatments and prevention. The Division is particularly interested in the "big" diseases where millions of lives can be saved - cancer, and infectious diseases such as malaria and pandemic preparedness. It also has world-leading research programmes in cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis and osteoporosis and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

What this role entails?

The Medical Sciences Divisional development team is small but highly effective, working collaboratively with colleagues across the Division and with expert colleagues in Development and Alumni Engagement. Both Heads of Department, Professor Belinda Lennox (Psychiatry) and Professor Kevin Talbot (Clinical Neurosciences) are closely involved with fundraising and will be strategic partners for the post holder.

This is a key role within the team and the post holder will have the opportunity to work with donors and academics at the highest level. Development at Oxford is well established and this role has the scope to work across a number of important and high-profile projects related to neurosciences, including mental health and neurological disease, including a future redevelopment of the Warneford site.

The post holder will manage a portfolio of more than 100 major gifts prospects. They will be responsible for the identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of potential donors able to support Neuroscience related projects (encompassing mental health and neurological disease) in the Medical Sciences Division at Oxford, typically in the range of £100,000-£1,000,000 over time.

To be successful in this role:

* Proven fundraising experience in a complex organisation and direct involvement in securing major gifts
* Evidence of leading or contributing to a major relationship to achieve successful fundraising
* Ability to establish credibility, confidence and robust relationships with existing and prospective donors, and key stakeholders
* An ability to think both strategically and tactically about the relations between potential donors and fund-raising goals
* An ability to provide specialist expertise in the area of major gift giving, and to develop a long-term strategy for the solicitation of principal gifts
* An interest in mental health, neurological disease, neurosciences, psychiatry and general medical sciences
* An interest in higher education and ideally an understanding of the University of Oxford, and its goals in teaching and research
