Swansea University was built by industry for industry and places Innovation and Enterprise (I&E) at the heart of its strategic thinking. SU has built extensive links to industrial partners and other key external stakeholders (including the NHS) over preceding decades and will continue to grow this activity in the future. To enable further growth opportunities in the I&E space, FMHLS is looking to recruit an academic on the I&E academic career pathway, who also will take on the role of Enterprise Partnerships and Innovation (EPI) lead for the Faculty. The role will include 60% FTE for the individual academic I&E role and 40% FTE for the EPI lead. The personal academic element of the role will see the appointed individual develop a portfolio of I&E activities within the health arena.
Swansea University is part of the ARCH partnership (A Regional Collaboration for Health), strategically working with the 2 local health boards to design and introduce innovation in the NHS whilst simultaneously supporting NHS employees to embrace innovation and become health entrepreneurs. FMHLS has an impressive track record in enterprise and partnership & innovation and currently has 25 academics on the I&E pathway. We have a current pipeline of >180 research and innovation projects, totalling over £170m of funding with 16 active patents and a pipeline of IP disclosures. Indeed, FMHLS have built research impact delivery through this innovation pipeline.
The personal academic element of the role (60% FTE) will see the appointed individual develop a portfolio of I&E activities within the health and sports arena working with external companies (large and small), Welsh Government, the NHS, Health Boards, other healthcare providers, and other public and third sector partners.
For personal academic role (60%), applicants should be able to demonstrate a track record in academic innovation and enterprise activity within the health sector. This can be related to business facing activities working with companies (IP, spin out, licensing) or with external stake holders in the health sector (NHS, healthcare providers).
We expect the applicant to have a demonstrated track record in innovation funding success from enterprise-facing funding bodies (UK/Welsh government, BEIS, Innovate UK) and from industry themselves. Knowledge of academic impact and the steps needed to nurture impact would be beneficial. Experience of teaching in the university-sector and possession of a teaching qualification is desirable.
