The California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) is dedicated to helping to turn great science into societal benefit by promoting the creation of new companies and mutually beneficial alliances with existing companies. In the last couple of decades, we have witnessed an explosion in our knowledge of biological systems, but unfortunately there has been a steady decline in the conversion of this knowledge into the advances that society expects: better health, environmental sustainability and jobs. We believe in finding solutions to this challenge by bringing together the best science and best entrepreneurial practices to lower the barriers between discovery and commercial success.
The Entrepreneurship Program Manager (EPM) manages several key programs in the QB3 portfolio, such as the QB3 Startup in a Box and partnership with academic entities such as UC Hastings Law School and companies such as Bayer and Bio Rad who can provide resources for early stage companies. The position is poised to continually search for new ways to lower the barriers to success by developing new programs and partnerships.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced professional with a full understanding of analytical practices, policies and procedures. Duties include researching, analyzing and developing solutions to a wide range of issues. Demonstrates good judgment in selecting methods and techniques for obtaining solutions. Primarily deals with policies, programs and proposals which are complex in nature and diverse in scope. Develops new programs, policies or procedures for possible implementation.
