Commercialisation Licensing Manager: University of Leeds

Do you want to make a major contribution to the evaluation and licensing of our technologies? Can you lead commercial negotiations? 

This post provides an exciting opportunity to play a role in the commercialisation of Intellectual Property (IP) generated within the University of Leeds, one of the largest research-intensive universities in the UK. The University’s commercialisation team is one of the most successful in the UK, managing and developing an extensive IP portfolio and in excess of 150 technology licences.

The University has placed innovation and impact as key objectives in an ambitious strategy and is seeking to expand its commercialisation activities. The Commercialisation Team supports the University’s IP licensing and company spinout activities.

This is a challenging role, requiring an energetic and self-motivated individual with a can-do attitude to make a major contribution to the commercial development and licensing of our technologies. You will have a background in a life/physical sciences or engineering discipline and demonstrable competencies in commercialising technologies. With a flexible approach to work you will be capable of independent management of broad project portfolios and have a proven ability to secure and manage deals with commercial partners. Strong negotiation, analytical, planning and implementation skills to progress opportunities to successful commercial outcomes are also essential.
