Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) is a preeminent international advocacy and research organization that uses science and medicine to prevent mass atrocities and severe human rights violations. For more than 30 years, PHR has mobilized a community of clinicians and human rights professionals to advance human rights, public health, and social justice across the globe. In this time, it has become a trailblazer in its field, leading landmark investigations into crimes against humanity, and earning a 1997 Nobel Prize for its investigation of the health impact of land mines in Cambodia. PHR has also exposed the use of chemical weapons against civilians in Iraq, exhumed mass graves in Bosnia and Rwanda for international tribunals and provided evidence for criminal investigations into torture and extrajudicial executions.
Today, PHR is on the front lines of the most pressing human rights crises of our time, from the coup in Myanmar, to U.S. police violence, and the COVID-19 pandemic. The last year has only highlighted the critical importance of using science-based approaches to safeguard human rights, most particularly those of women and children, immigrants, refugees, detainees, and other populations at risk.
Recent highlights of PHR’s work include:
PHR’s vital work is sustained by a dynamic and deeply committed team of approximately 45 based in New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is also supported by a prominent Board and an annual operating budget of nearly $8-9M.
The Director of Institutional Development is responsible for identifying new prospective donors and creating and implementing strategies for PHR’s institutional giving program, comprised of foundations, governments, and corporate funders. The director of institutional development will report to the CDMO and supervise a staff of three. They will help to establish and maintain relationships with PHR’s institutional funders and will work closely with PHR leadership and other staff to design and prepare funding proposals and reports, and to help ensure compliance with all awarded grants and their requirements. This role will also be instrumental in the development of new programmatic areas of work during the 2021/22 year.
The ideal candidate will have experience growing and managing a diverse portfolio of funders and grants in line with strategic organizational priorities, and a demonstrated capability in forming strong relationships with funders and partners.
