Organization and Role Background:
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana. Research indicates that psychedelics have the potential to be a breakthrough in treating PTSD, depression, addiction, and other conditions.
MAPS has worked for over 35 years toward paving the way for education and legalization of such breakthrough medicines. MAPS is committed to bringing these healing modalities to the world and providing them in such a way that communities that most need mental health resources have access to them. This shift has the potential to unlock previously unavailable resources for the investigation of psychedelic-assisted treatments applied to our most critical mental health challenges.
The MAPS Corporate Counsel will act as leadership for legal across MAPS and its subsidiaries and is responsible for leading legal initiatives to mitigate risk, ensure compliance and expand opportunities. This position requires strong analytical abilities and attention to detail, as well as advanced communication skills. The person in this role must possess the ability to present complex legal information in a coherent manner to collaborators without a legal background, as well as have a knack for meeting tight deadlines.
