Research Commercialisation Manager: University of Bristol

We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced individual to develop and manage a portfolio of commercialisation projects across a broad range of technology areas but particularly in physical sciences and engineering. This new position will join a growing team working across the innovation value chain from intellectual property identification to commercialisation. The person will be involved in all aspects of the process: guiding researchers in the strategic use of their intellectual property; assessing technology disclosures for patentability or other protection mechanisms; managing the process for gaining intellectual property protection; advising on development and commercialisation routes for technology; providing commercial inputs to translational funding applications and driving commercialisation via licenses or company creation.

 Experience of taking innovations to the market within a commercial environment or within the higher education sector is essential, as is a degree or equivalent and an active network of relevant contacts. Experience of working in software or copyright commercialisation would be an advantage.

 If you’re passionate about ensuring research outputs make an impact through commercialisation and working with researchers in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities, then we’d be interested in hearing from you.

 It is anticipated that interviews will take place on 5 December 2019.

 For informal enquiries please contact Jaci Barnett, Head of Research Commercialisation,
