One River Grants has a position available for a full-time health care grant writer in our Troy, NY office.
One River Grants relies on a team of grant writers with complementary skills and knowledge who work with clients (often hospitals, health centers, and community-based organizations) to develop, draft, complete, and submit funding applications. These applications range in complexity. Often, they are requests for funding to support health care and public health service delivery and research projects, prepared in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP), Request for Applications (RFA), or similar announcement.
As more than just a “writer,” your responsibilities will include: collection and interpretation of public health data; developing and refining strategic approaches with clients; literature review and synthesis; conceptualization and description of evidence-based programs; identification of funding agency preferences and threshold issues; anticipation of program costs and development of budgets; clear and concise writing; and the creation of graphics depicting organizational and project structure, as well as presentations.
Candidates must possess a graduate degree (see degree specifications listed below); an extensive knowledge of health services delivery, public health, and/or medicine; an understanding of government grants and strategic approaches to funding for under-served populations; research skills; and wide-ranging writing skills.
Telecommuting is negotiable although candidates who can work in our Troy, NY office are preferred.
