Part Time Contract Administrator (Contract)

Goldfinch Bio - Cambridge, MA

At Goldfinch, we are pioneering a new approach to discover and develop therapeutics for kidney disease that is unprecedented.
Where others see risk, we see opportunity to make an impact and redefine the state of care for patients with kidney disease. We recognize the importance of collaboration, and strive to work alongside patients, clinicians and other partners to empower patients and develop treatments for conditions where no approved therapies exist.

We’re looking for teammates who relish the challenge, and are compelled to leave a positive mark on the lives of colleagues and patients alike.
