Senior Business Manager – Permanent

The individual we wish to identify will be able to demonstrate a strong grounding in a biological or medical related discipline to PhD level, together with significant commercial experience and an excellent grasp of intellectual property issues.

Previous technology transfer experience is desirable. The individual will be highly motivated and enthusiastic, with excellent negotiation, communication and organisational skills.

The successful applicant will be required to work closely with academics and clinicians in identifying wide-ranging novel technologies, enable the development of the technologies, and ultimately the commercialisation of them at the interface of academia, healthcare and industry.
