Applicants are invited to apply for the role(s) of Quantum Enterprise Fellow within the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) at The University of Bristol. QETLabs is a multi-million pound cross-faculty centre for research, training and enterprise based in the School of Physics and Dept. of Electrical and Electronic engineering.

As a Quantum Enterprise Fellow, you will be part of a one year, cohort-based, programme focussed on implementing; building and developing a business. You will attend taught courses covering aspects of systems thinking and design, enterprise and entrepreneurship. As a fellow your business will be based upon a technology you have the right to work with and the drive to turn into a commercial success.

This programme is suitable for those who have either just completed a PhD or early career researchers who may already have an idea for a quantum technology they wish to commercialise; or for those who have a related technical background and wish to become a quantum entrepreneur or innovator in an existing company. We are supportive of applications from members of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme.

The Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre (QTEC) represents a world-first for quantum enterprise training. As part of the University of Bristol’s multi-disciplinary Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QET Labs), this high profile and unique training centre, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), builds upon the already successful Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (QE-CDT) and is partnered with Cranfield University's Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship, creating a world-leading Centre to train entrepreneurially-minded, quantum systems engineers, ready for a career in the emerging quantum technology industry.

In addition to our standard University application you are asked to complete an additional application form. You are asked to upload this with your on-line application.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Sunday 21st May 2017.
