We run a one-year technology transfer training fellowship in partnership with AUTM Foundation. This programme equips academic life scientists, at the graduate or post-doctoral level, with the skills and knowledge to transition into careers in technology transfer through a curriculum that combines formal training with networking, mentoring and practical experience in the field.
The deadline for applications to the 2020 programme was July 14, 2019.
LifeArc-AUTM Fellows programme
The LifeArc-AUTM Fellows programme is a one-year technology transfer training fellowship that we run in partnership with the AUTM Foundation. The programme equips academic life scientists, at the graduate or post-doctoral level, with the skills and knowledge to transition into careers in technology transfer through a curriculum that combines formal training with networking, mentoring and practical experience in the field. The five alumni from the 2017-18 intake went on to be employed in prominent technology transfer roles.
The application window for 2020 Fellows closed in July 2019.
Fellows are expected to commit to time outside of their current positions and will be sponsored to attend two major AUTM meetings in the US and one in Europe. Where possible, assistance will be provided to secure an eight-week internship in a technology transfer office.
