Noetic is the preeminent investment group in the emerging psychedelic pharmaceutical sector. We are seeking a talented Talent Acquisition Lead to support our growing firm, which operates three venture funds, the Noetic Psychedelic Funds I and II and the Grey House High Impact Fund, as well as a startup foundry for psychedelic medicine. 

Reporting to the Partners of Noetic, the Talent Acquisition Lead will manage the full life-cycle recruiting process, including identifying and engaging top talent, building our employer brand and attracting exceptional people into our ecosystem. This will be a multi-faceted role, including recruitment of a range of different roles from senior management (i.e., portfolio company C-suite roles), to scientific leadership to core team members on the Noetic team. 

The ideal candidate must possess a keen entrepreneurial spirit, as the team at Noetic is operating in a fast-evolving space and has an ambitious growth plan. In addition to supporting the venture funds, the recruiter will have the opportunity to work directly with portfolio companies as well as on projects relating to Noetic’s venture studio (startup foundry).

We require 3-5 years of prior recruiting experience, ideally in a fast-paced environment. 

Company Overview

The General Partners of Noetic Psychedelic Fund came together with the strong belief that psychoactive plants and their related compounds offer medical science a truly ‘disruptive technology’ for treating many of society’s greatest unmet medical and mental health needs. We believe the psychedelic pharmaceutical industry is only just emerging and that it will experience exponential growth over the coming decade as new psychedelic-based medicines and therapies are approved by national regulators and adopted by mainstream medicine.

Psychedelic medicine offers higher efficacy rates, minimal toxicity, lower treatment costs and customized solutions to those suffering from medical and mental health disorders. These breakthroughs will help transform the mental healthcare industry to move from treating a patient’s symptoms to providing long-term holistic solutions to patient problems. With disruption, changes occur quickly and the magnitude of change can be staggering. This nascent industry will offer first-movers, entrepreneurs and investors alike, a myriad of opportunities. We believe this opportunity set will manifest across intellectual property, medicine research and development, therapeutic modalities and networks, education, diagnostic technologies, integrated and holistic wellness centres and beyond.

Psychedelic-based medicines and their related therapies are generally unknown, under-researched and hard-to-value by the investment industry. This creates rare and fertile ground for first-mover investors. With opportunities abound to invest in and partner with medical and academic researchers, entrepreneurs, nascent pharmaceutical companies and other thought leaders, GHP is building a multi-faceted investment and merchant banking platform to help early-stage companies bring their novel medicines and technologies to market.
