For this funding announcement, the CTSI strongly encourages applications from postdoctoral fellows who have a keen interest in directed training in advancing innovations into commercialization and entrepreneurship.
The CTSI postdoctoral fellow will undertake a translational research project focused on the development of life science technology pertaining to health and human disease. The project could include research on the development of therapies, diagnostics, or medical devices. The postdoc will work in an entrepreneurial ecosystem located at one of the four CTSI partner campuses (IUB, IUSM, Purdue, and Notre Dame). The position could involve engagement in commercialization activities pre-company formation, which could include working with mentors to move a technology through their home institutions commercialization or significant work with startup companies including, pharmaceutical and medical device companies. The fellow will work in an environment with mentors who can help the fellow develop the necessary skills to become a successful entrepreneur.
