Dell Medical School is the newest of 18 colleges and schools at UT Austin and the first new medical school at a top-tier Association for American Universities research university in nearly 50 years. Founded in 2013, the School is fully enrolled, with a rapidly growing clinical enterprise at UT Health Austin, and a new approach to health innovation that harnesses the University’s vast research expertise.
The University of Texas is heading into its next campaign — anticipated to be one of the largest and most ambitious campaigns in public higher education. Transforming health is one of four campaign pillars, and the fundraising priorities of Dell Medical School and UT Health Austin have the full support of the president, provost and regents. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture the attention of generous philanthropists ready to invest in shaping the future of medical education, care and research.
The University of Texas at Austin and Dell Medical School seek two Directors of Development to raise philanthropic support for the School and its clinical practice, UT Health Austin, from major and principal gift donors and prospective donors. Successful candidates will have exemplary relationship building skills, strong organizational and writing skills, expertise in, and an enthusiasm for, building a portfolio from scratch, and a successful track record of fundraising successes at organizations of academic medicine, science research, or with a grateful patient model. A demonstrated ability to think creatively, nimbly, and strategically and a belief in the mission and vision of Dell Medical School are essential for these new roles.
This is an opportunity to join a rapidly growing development team at Dell Medical School with highly collaborative colleagues who are goal-oriented and deeply committed to the success of Dell Medical School. Individually, members are bright, curious, highly motivated, and kind; collectively, they are a fundraising force.
