LifeArc opens fellowship applications
LifeArc and the Association of University Technology Managers have opened applications for their Technology Transfer Fellowship 2019-2020.
The programme is a one-year fellowship to train life scientists as technology transfer specialists. The deadline for applications is July 7, 2019.
The fellowship is suitable for academic life scientists at graduate or post-doctoral level from across the European Union. If successful, fellows will be put through a curriculum consisting of formal training, networking, mentoring and practical experience in the field.
They will also receive a two-year AUTM membership and be sponsored to attend three major technology transfer meetings – two in the US and one in Europe.
Medical research charity LifeArc originally launched the programme with the aim of addressing a shortfall in the number of aspiring technology transfer professionals.
The scheme is run in partnership with the technology transfer offices for Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London and University College London.
