Role Description

Technology Innovation Manager – Grow MedTech

The new Grow MedTEch programme is seeking an exceptional candidate to work closely with academics, companies and clinicians to enable more exciting med-tech opportunities developed by universities and companies to progress to commercial propositions.

The programme, funded by HEFCE, will be delivered by a consortium of Universities in the Leeds and Sheffield City regions with unique strengths in medical technologies (Leeds, Bradford, Leeds Beckett, Huddersfield, York, and Sheffield Hallam) working in partnership with companies. Grow Med-Tech will help to deliver the objectives of the Government’s Industrial Strategy by enabling universities to bring together disciplines and technologies to address emerging medtech market opportunities and clinical challenges, and work more effectively with businesses and investors to progress technology opportunities that will increase the competitiveness of UK med-tech on the global stage.

The Technology Innovation Managers will identify promising medtech opportunities emerging from the consortium and its networks, match these with appropriate academic capability, company partners and other collaborators and provide the support and management to de-risk these technologies ready for commercial investment.

Each Technology Innovation Manager will be anchored in one of the partner universities, but will work as part of a united team of innovation specialists across the partnership for the benefit of the whole consortium and for the med-tech sector.

This post will be hosted by the University of York, within its’ Research & Enterprise Directorate, as one of the partner universities and, drawing on its unique institutional knowledge exchange strengths and networks, together with your sector specialist insights and experience, you will work for the benefit of all the partners and for the medtech sector to translate promising technology opportunities.


Salary within the range:  £38,832 - £47,722 a year on Grade 7 of the University’s salary scales

Closing date:  28 June 2018.
