Postdoctoral Research Associate, Faculty of Business


The Function

Functions are invited for a Postdoctoral Analysis Affiliate to help a analysis challenge exploring academic-industry engagement, science commercialisation, and the event of university-centred entrepreneurial ecosystems. Universities have develop into more and more targeted on commercialising their data, participating with industrial companions comparable to small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), and diversifying earnings streams. On the similar time, useful resource constrained SMEs have realised the alternatives afforded to them in mobilising assets and scaling their ventures by participating with universities. It’s these entrepreneurial/business actions on the university-industry (U-I) boundary that help the emergence and growth of university-centred entrepreneurial ecosystems (UCEEs). Nevertheless, while lecturers are inspired to behave entrepreneurially, this poses a number of challenges. Likewise, regardless of {industry} companions having a lot to achieve from participating with college lecturers, they too face challenges in doing so. Sadly, regardless of a broad and rising literature within the educational entrepreneurship subject, our understanding of the processes, significantly on the micro-level, underlying U-I engagement, science commercialisation, and UCEEs stays restricted. Accordingly, this analysis challenge will examine U-I engagement actions and science commercialisation on the U-I boundary, and the way these actions contribute to UCEE dynamics.

The profitable applicant will work alongside the challenge Principal Investigator (PI), Affiliate Professor David Johnson. The broader challenge workforce contains Co-PIs – Affiliate Professor Jeffrey Hughes, Professor Andrew Parker, and Professor Karena Yan) – and an industrial companion. The position is funded by Durham College Enterprise College’s Sensible & Scale initiative, which is an interdisciplinary impact-driven analysis programme in sensible and scale-up actions, specializing in innovation and enterprise growth of SMEs within the North-East of England.
