  • Do you have research experience from industry or a PhD relating to human biology with strong search, analytical and communication skills?
  • Are you wanting to move from the lab into commercialisation and learn from a collaborative, supportive team environment?

UniQuest is Australia’s leading university commercialisation company.  We partner with researchers at The University of Queensland (UQ) to create impact through the commercialisation of UQ’s intellectual property.

Our track record includes the licensing of Australia’s blockbuster vaccine Gardasil®, and the acquisitions of our start-up companies Spinifex and Inflazome for two of the highest value exits for Australian biotech start-ups from University research.

The Analyst role supports the assessment of invention disclosures and selected innovative technologies for commercial potential and may be exposed to other aspects of commercialisation, including technical evaluation, intellectual property identification and ownership, and market, financial and commercial analysis.

Join UniQuest as a Commercialisation Analyst in the Life Sciences team, and you will:

  • Prepare and qualify preliminary due diligence evaluations for new invention disclosures, leveraging a supported and proven framework;
  • Support business development and commercialisation by market and competitor analysis, find comparable deals, prepare technology marketing flyers and identify potential licensees; and
  • Analyse intellectual property disclosures from UQ researchers to identify those with commercial potential. 

The ideal candidate will be driven, organised, have a commercial mindset and be able to support a large and varied portfolio of commercialisation projects.

This entry-level position offers outstanding personal and professional development experiences along with the opportunity to work in an industry-experienced team.

The role is based at UniQuest’s offices on UQ’s St Lucia campus, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
