About the Role
The Healthcare Technologies Capability Connector is an 18-month collaborative project between the University of Herfordshire, Imperial College London and Cranfield University. It aims to boost commercialisation know-how, share best practice around effective research translation and build a diverse talent pipeline of researchers and entrepreneurs in order to bring new healthcare-related products, services and technologies to market. Working closely with your line manager, the Project Lead (based at the University of Hertfordshire) and partner project teams, your role will be to provide operational support to the project, to liaise with academic and professional support staff across Cranfield University to deliver the project workstreams, to assist with the cross-pollination of resource (expertise and facilities) between the three universities, and to capture insights, outputs and impacts from the project. There will also be opportunities to work with the Knowledge Exchange team on a wider range of initiatives involving partnership development, and support for innovation and emerging technologies.
You will be educated to degree level in a science, engineering or business related subject or have equivalent experience, and have demonstrable experience with research commercialisation or support for technical innovation, as well as proven ability in successful project management and in effective communication with diverse teams.
