Legal Contracts Manager (IP)

Rothamsted Research

Overview Of Role

At Rothamsted, we focus on strategic agricultural science to the benefit of farmers and society worldwide.  Feeding 9 billion people by 2050 is a huge challenge, and we need the best and brightest minds to be able to do this.

As Legal Contracts Manager (IP), you’ll play a key role supporting our ground breaking science in the Legal Team, managing the contractual negotiations and advisory activity across a wide range of commercial and IP matters.  From engaging with key stakeholders to providing strategic and tactical support when required, your relationship-building, influence and collaboration skills will be key.  Naturally you will be an experienced commercial contracts manager and your proven expertise in IP law will place you at the heart of Rothamsted’s innovation and IP commercialisation activities.

Previous experience of working for a research-related or academic organisation would help you to hit the ground running in this busy role but more important is the fact that you are a collaborative and positive team player with a desire to make a difference.

This 1 year fixed term contract is a full-time position but part-time applications from candidates who meet the shortlisting criteria (see person specification) will be considered.

Interviews will be held 9th and 10th January 2018.
