Job Description

Many of the diseases that affect human health have been cured as a result of medical research, but there will always be more to do and there are areas that receive little support – and people’s lives that see no improvement. That’s where we step in. The Medical Research Foundation is dedicated to improving health through medical research.

A key priority for our Board this year will be implementing our new investment strategy on which our recently established Investment Committee will take the lead.  We would like to appoint two external members onto the Investment Committee who will bring their professional experience to ensure that our investment managers are held to account, our investment strategy delivers its agreed objectives and even more funds can be spent on medical research.

The Medical Research Foundation is committed to promoting equality and diversity opportunities and we welcome applications from all aspects of society.  We would particularly welcome applications from people from the BAME communities as these characteristics are currently under-represented on the Board.

The Investment Committee is expected to meet twice a year, usually in central London.  The positions are voluntary and not remunerated, although reasonable expenses are paid.

The appointment will commence in Autumn 2018.
