NCBiotech Transforms Life Science and North Carolina

The NCBiotech Center is currently seeking a Crop Commercialization Project Manager to join our Agriculture Sector Development team.

About NCBiotech

NCBiotech's vision is North Carolina: a global life science leader. Our work develops the life science ecosystem in North Carolina, leading to better healthcare, faster diagnostics and more sustainable food production, all while, creating jobs right here in our state. This economic transformation is why the General Assembly has funded us for three decades, and continues its commitment today.

NCBiotech's Team

We are a team of about 70 mostly within RTP, but also across North Carolina from offices in Asheville, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Greenville and Wilmington. We are all expert in some aspect of life science research, or financing, or policy. We also bring our experience in supporting roles such as market research, communications, accounting, and meeting planning, to contribute to the growth of this significant industry in North Carolina.

We are not a startup but we think like one. We are not a widespread multinational company, but we cast a long shadow. We are not a research lab but we know what it takes to move ideas forward.

We know our science, our data and high finance. We connect to our communities, our state and our world. We act, every day, to transform life science and North Carolina.
