National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) unrelentingly invests in, mobilizes and unites our community to discover a cure, deliver effective treatments, and advocate for patients and their care partners. NBTS is a leading policy advocacy and research organization as well as a convener of brain tumor research leaders including industry, regulators, funders, clinician researchers and patient advocates. The organization also delivers timely information and support to patients and families. Through collaborative leadership with partners, our results include paradigm shifting research discoveries, increased federal funding for brain tumor research, innovative new clinical trials, opportunities for entrepreneurship and venture philanthropy to benefit brain tumor research, and empowering collaborative advocacy that results in reforms and advances to health care and the development of treatments.

While we have seen significant progress in terms of scientific understanding of brain tumor biology, we are unsatisfied with the status quo of today’s treatment options. NBTS is committed to investment in new ideas and research poised to incent the development and realization of treatments that dramatically increase survival and quality of life for patients.


Reporting to the CSDO, the Associate Director manages mission-critical enterprise-level project processes that require complex collaboration between a wide variety of internal and external stakeholders. Projects will span organizational programmatic areas, which seek to defeat brain brain tumors through cutting-edge treatment development initiatives, connect patients and care partners to the resources needed to navigate their diagnosis, and change the healthcare landscape through public policy advocacy. The Associate Director will be instrumental in each stage of the project lifecycle, from initiation and planning to ensuring successful deliverables and producing final retrospective project reports.
