We're looking to recruit a Scientific Patent Analyst to join one of Cambridge's R&D 'giants'. They've been leaders in their field for almost 30 years. Originally a University spin out, they're now owned by a huge global company and are now widening their activities and working on some fascinating technologies in some interesting industries.
As part of the broader Intellectual Property (IP) team, you will also work closely with the parent company in identifying potential partnership opportunities. The role will involve developing, performing, and analysing comprehensive IP landscapes, and other types of IP searches. The sort of start-ups you will be involved with will have interest in a wide range of technologies, from medical to energy and everything in between.
Your role will also involve developing and executing large IP projects, such as patent portfolio re-evaluations, process improvements, etc. For example, finding alternative cloud-based searching platforms and guiding projects through the project stage gate process from an IP perspective.
The important bits...
The person we are looking for will bring with them an impressive academic record and have a degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry, in addition to an MSc in IP. Alternatively, you could perhaps have an MSc or PhD in Chemistry or Biochemistry but have plenty of demonstrable experience in IP, ideally gained as an inventor or an IP professional. It's essential that you have experience in patent landscaping and patent analysis.
Other useful experience might be that you've worked with a major patent related database and gained some experience carrying out efficient and accurate reiterations of search results that yield highly relevant data-sets and interpretation of results for internal clients and IP colleagues.
We're looking for someone who has a genuine interest in learning about new technologies; somebody creative, with the aptitude for thinking outside the box and synthesising data from multiple sources to make actionable business recommendations to clients. Naturally, you'll be a great communicator in your field and certainly across all levels of the business. A good command of English language is essential.
This company are able to offer a friendly working environment, with genuine opportunities for learning and development within their diverse team. It always says a lot about the company when staff have been there for years, and many of them have! Company benefits are generous and they also support flexible and hybrid working patterns. They're a lovely bunch! Happy to have a more in-depth with anyone interested, of course.
Location-wise, they are based about 20 minutes (drive) north of Cambridge with very easy access to the A1, A14, M11, etc. Alternatively, they are a couple of miles from a local, mainline rail station.
