The Babraham Institute (BI) is a world-class research institution, situated at the heart of the Babraham Research Campus, near Cambridge. Our mission is to be an international leader in research focusing on basic cell and molecular biology with an emphasis on healthy ageing through the human lifecycle.  Babraham’s world leading science, state-of-the art scientific facilities, and co-location with 60 small to medium sized biotech companies on the Babraham Research Campus, mean that we are in an excellent position to translate our research into economic benefit.
Our Commercialisation Manager is critical to this work and so we are pleased to advertise this recently-revised position.
An influential and highly regarded post within the Babraham Institute, the Commercialisation Manager role plays a critical part in the translation and development of Babraham Institute’s science and technology programmes.

Working closely with Institute scientists to generate impact and identify avenues to translate research, this exciting role will lead on all business development and technology transfer opportunities.  The Commercialisation Manager will also look to exploit the Institute’s strong and varied patent portfolio to generate its economic impact.
Joining an expanding Knowledge Exchange and Commercialisation (KEC) team, the post holder will be responsible for a Contracts Officer and a KEC officer to assist in the delivery and development of all aspects of commercialisation from assessment through to management and implementation.
Applicants will have a postgraduate degree in a relevant scientific subject or equivalent experience, and will also have experience of working at a strategic level to plan and implement commercialisation projects and technology transfer activities.  Suitable candidates will have strong interpersonal skills, proactive approach and experience of building relationships with industry.
