Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Human Immunome Project (HIP) in the search for a Vice President for Philanthropy.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Vice President for Philanthropy will work with the Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors to maintain and grow HIP's existing portfolio of industry and foundation donors and prospects while building a pipeline of individual major funders. As HIP puts its Scientific Strategic Plan into action, it is seeking a Vice President for Philanthropy to work closely with HIP leaders as they build the resources needed to complete a worldwide health resource that will change the paradigm of global human health. This is a remote position with a preference for the Northeast or Midwest (Metropolitan Chicago). Travel is required, for this position (approximately 25% domestic with one to two international trips annually).

The Human Immunome Project is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to decoding and modeling the immune system. Together with its network of partners, HIP is pioneering the next frontier in health and medicine. HIP envisions a future that harnesses the power of the immune system to improve health for all. A future where life expectancy and access to lifesaving preventative care, diagnostics, and treatment are not dependent on your race or ethnicity, where you live or your socioeconomic status. A future where pandemics can be stopped in their tracks, and we can beat infectious and non-communicable diseases alike.

The human immune system is one of the most complex systems in the world—and one of its most important. It determines whether we survive infancy, which diseases we get, how we age, and how long we live. Within it lies the secrets of who will respond, and how, to potential threats to our health. Understanding our immune system is the key to fighting disease and improving health for all. Yet its complexity has limited our ability to tap into its potential—until now. Recent advances in AI provide the tools to rapidly process the trillions of datapoints required to model the immune system, understand how it varies across individuals, and develop targeted approaches to elongating health spans and combatting disease. The Human Immunome Project was designed to meet this moment—to combine systems biology with the power of artificial intelligence, to decode and model the immune system to improve health for all.

The Human Immunome Project welcomed new leadership in 2023 with Dr. Hans Keirstead assuming the role of Chief Executive Officer. Throughout the year, work continued alongside the Scientific Steering Committee, led by Dr. John Tsang and Dr. Shai Shen-Orr to articulate a global study protocol and scaling strategy to generate the world’s largest immunological dataset and build publicly available AI models of the immune system. With the release of the Scientific Strategic Plan, HIP 2.0 was launched and began to execute on an actionable strategy to transform the future of global health.

A bachelor’s degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience and at least seven years of experience is preferred for this role, including at least three years of experience in healthcare, hospital, or medical related philanthropy. The Human Immunome Project will consider candidates with a broad range of backgrounds. If you are excited about this role and feel that you can contribute to HIP, but your experience does not exactly align with every qualification listed above, we encourage you to apply. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Human Immunome Project as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.

The salary range for this position is $150,000 to $175,000 annually.

The Human Immunome Project is committed to the inclusion of all qualified candidates. If you require reasonable accommodation in completing this application, interviewing, or participating in the selection process, please contact Jeanette Rivera-Watts at
