This is an opportunity for a bright, inquisitive, people-oriented fundraising professional to join a very successful organization as it prepares to celebrate its 75th Anniversary. The Director of Development will work with an experienced National Vice President and Executive Director, Southern California and other staff in the Southern California office to develop and maintain donor relationships; develop and implement fundraising and leadership development programs; and increase awareness of the research at the Weizmann Institute of Science among donors, prospects and the broader community.

The Director of Development will engage supporters and prospects to participate in parlor meetings, luncheons and galas; meetings with Institute scientists; educational campaigns to spread the news of research discovery; and special initiatives like NextGen, the Vera and Chaim Weizmann Honor Society and Women for Science. S/he will have the opportunity to keep up to date on the latest Weizmann research and Institute discoveries.

Weizmann donors and prospects are driven by the excitement of the science and what new discoveries will contribute to benefit humanity in the future. Although deep knowledge of science is not required, this position calls for someone with immense curiosity and the ability to translate complex scientific research being conducted at the Institute into terms that the layman will grasp.
