The offices of biotechnology and business development are pleased to announce that the 8th term of its Technology Transfer Intern Program (T2IP) will begin this summer.
T2IP is designed to provide a local, hands-on experience in the field of technology transfer geared towards post-defense* Ph.D. Einstein Sue Golding graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in Einstein's Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies program that are considering careers outside of the laboratory setting.
Technology transfer is defined by the Association of University Technology Mangers as “the process of transferring scientific findings from one organization to another for the purpose of further development and commercialization.” At Einstein, the offices of biotechnology and business development handle all technology transfer operations and initiatives for the College.
Each month, several new disclosures describing innovations made by Einstein faculty and staff are received and routed through the Patent Committee process, as described in Einstein’s Official Policy on Patents and Licensing. Once a decision is made to pursue intellectual property (IP) protection for a disclosed innovation, the offices of biotechnology and business development begin marketing the technology to companies.
The goal is to find a commercial partner interested in licensing Einstein's rights to its technologies with the ability to further develop and commercialize the innovations so that they can serve the public good.
This intern program will provide selected candidates with practical experience in business development and marketing, an increased knowledge of biotechnology, an opportunity to interact with esteemed scientists at Einstein and access to networking with other technology transfer/business development professionals.
To learn more about the intern program, please download the T2IP Job Description here. If you are interested in applying for this internship, candidates must complete and submit the application form no later than Monday, June 16, 2014. The program will begin with orientation the week of June 23rd, and upon successful completion of a probationary period the Program will run until October 2014.
If you have any question, please contact us.
