Associate or Senior Associate, TPG Life Sciences
TPG Life Sciences Description: TPG is among the world’s leading private investment firms, with approximately $100B of assets under management, and has invested over $20B in equity in healthcare in the last two decades. The life sciences venture platform is focused on companies developing breakthrough life science technologies that provide significant impact to patients and generate attractive returns. We have invested several hundred million in the last few years, including in Allogene, AskBio, Ceribell, RallyBio, Vaxcyte, and stealth companies. Investments will focus on therapeutics, with a secondary focus on devices, diagnostics, digital health, and innovative services. Therapeutics investments will be across disease areas and stages of development, but focus on pre-proof of concept companies. There is also flexibility to participate in larger deals in more mature companies alongside TPG’s Growth and Leveraged Buyout sister funds.
Position Description: The Associate will play a role across the lifecycle of investment, helping to screen and generate investment ideas, conducting due diligence, and in supporting portfolio companies. A strong scientific or clinical background will be important to quickly analyze a diverse set of opportunities. Specific activities will include screening prospective investment presentations, meeting with management together with the team, articulating impressions on overall investment attractiveness, running due diligence through interviewing KOLs, working with consultants for scientific, business, and legal input, creating financial models in Excel, preparing investment memos, participating as an observer at the board level for select portfolio companies, tracking companies of interest, and meeting internal reporting requirements. Tasks will grow in complexity along with the capability of the associate. The Associate will be part of a growing Life Sciences practice at TPG and will play a key role in establishing the team culture.
