LifeArc is an independent medical research charity with over 25 years’ experience in helping scientists and organisations turn their research into effective diagnostics and treatments.
In support of this mission, LifeArc is launching a new Technology Transfer Fellowship programme in partnership with Imperial Innovations, Queen Mary Innovation and UCL Business (UCLB).
This new initiative aims to provide the first steps for talented scientists to transition into the field of technology transfer.
There will be four Fellows appointed who will each be given extensive training and experience in relation to identification of intellectual property (IP) with commercial potential, procuring IP protections, marketing and commercialisation processes including the eventual partnering of successful projects with the pharma industry via licensing or spin-out creation.
Each of the four participating organisations will house the Fellows, on a three-month rotational basis. Fellows will receive training on distinct topics during each rotation and benefit from being exposed to a variety of projects, expertise and organisational practises along the way.
The requirements for the successful candidates for these entry-level roles are :
For these fellowships, LifeArc offers a competitive entry-level salary in technology transfer. In addition, LifeArc offers a defined contribution pension scheme, private health insurance, a flexible benefits scheme and 31 days paid holiday per year.
