Industry Sponsored Research & Material Transfer Officer
University of California Los Angeles

Requisition Number: 35928
Salary: $6,125 - $16,042 monthly

Position Description:
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is known worldwide for the breadth and quality of its academic, research, health care, cultural, continuing education and athletics programs. The faculty at UCLA comprise one of the most intellectually productive academic communities in the nation, and the institution receives over $1 billion in extramural research funding annually. The UCLA Technology Development Group (TDG) is a group of professional staff dedicated to commercializing technology, collaborating with industry, and fostering entrepreneurship.

UCLA TDG seeks to hire a hard-working, detail oriented individual with previous experience negotiating and drafting agreements within an academic or corporate environment to serve as one member of a team of Industry Research & Material Transfer Officers.

Responsibilities for the Industry Research Officers include: (1) negotiating, drafting and executing agreements; (2) business development and relationship management; and (3) collaboration with UC and UCLA teams.

As part of the agreement duties, the IR-MT Officer maintains a caseload of agreements related to industry sponsor arrangements, material transfer arrangements, and other contracts that involve third parties. Each agreement is negotiated, drafted and/or reviewed to ensure that it complies with university policies and procedures, the expectations of the faculty and university, and that it does not conflict with or overlap with an existing arrangement. Topics may include publishing rights, intellectual property or licensing rights, attribution, confidentiality, deliverables, etc.

As part of the business development and relationship management duties the IR Officer conducts sector analysis for assigned areas to identify researchers and industry leaders, meets with faculty member and industry leaders individually and together for purposes of identifying and then matching research interests for purposes of funding generation and maintains contact with faculty and industry parties under existing agreements to ensure mutual satisfaction, anticipate issues of concern and to leverage existing relationships (for contract extension and/or expansion).

As part of the collaborative activities, the IR Officer works closely with UCLA and UC staff members to identify best practices, to explore various contractual mechanisms and to leverage existing campus or UC resources.
