The Eberly College of Science Office for Innovation (O4I) is seeking applicants for the Fall 2018/Spring 2019 Intellectual Property (IP)/Tech Transfer Graduate Internship.
The O4I aspires to help faculty inventors commercialize their technologies or IP. We are seeking a motivated graduate student to assist in this process via the Intellectual Property (IP)/Tech Transfer Graduate Internship. No experience is necessary to apply but a strong sense of curiosity and a willingness to learn about the development of IP is necessary.
This Internship is a highly personalized experience and can be used to develop skills highly sought after in Academia, Industry, the Government, and even Patent Law Firms. Previous interns have used experience gained during their internship to obtain successful careers in academic tech transfer and patent law.
