The research group of Professor Anthony Bull focused on the development of low-cost assistive devices is looking to appoint a business development design engineer with experience in developing medical devices and translating research projects from academia to the industry, interested in developing a commercialisation pipeline for our research outputs. The successful applicant will be a key member of the research group and have specific responsibility to:

- Develop a translation pipeline that will enable the commercialisation of assistive devices to relevant markets, such as these of low-to-middle income countries. As part of this task, the successful applicant will develop a network of collaborators, including key internal/external stakeholders, and engage with them to maximise the market uptake potential of research projects;
- Contribute in the group’s research strategy and set priorities focusing on the commercial potential of a project;
- Contribute in securing future funding and expanding the group’s portfolio of projects;
- Develop an understanding for the group’s research process as well as the needs of the relevant markets in order to link academia and industry successfully; and
- Represent the group to external partners and companies.

Applicants should be educated to MEng level (or equivalent) plus 3-4 years’ work experience. PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant area would be a strong advantage. Previous experience of working in projects regarding the development of medical devices is essential, ideally regarding assistive devices either in a research or a product development role. Previous experience in business development and exploration of commercialisation routes is also essential. Finally, previous participation in projects regarding the development of sustainable, low-cost solutions tailored to the needs of low-to-middle income countries would be desirable.
