Technology Commercialization Analyst

(Graduate Assistantship / 20 hours per week)

Technology Commercialization Analysts participate in many aspects of the technology commercialization process, with a focus on screening new disclosures to the office and evaluating the commercial landscape. Working with the OTM provides valuable technology management and evaluation experience along with exposure to some of UIC’s most exciting technologies.

Commercialization analysts assist OTM technology managers in the assessment and marketing of technologies.  This involves performing preliminary market and industry analysis for the applications of new technologies, and performing prior art research for new technologies.  Commercial analysts also assist OTM technology managers with marketing activities for high potential technologies, and with generating lists of potential licensees.

Currently there are no technology commercialization analyst positions available.
