Postgraduate Enterprise Fellowships

Are you a postgraduate student interested in the commercial development of cutting-edge new technologies? Maybe you are interested in learning new business skills to improve your employability? Or perhaps you have an idea of your own as a commercial proposition?

A number of internship opportunities currently exist for postgraduates to work within Enterprise and Business Development to assist with the commercialisation of new technologies emerging from the University's research base.

Training will be provided in the following areas:
  • HEIF and Knowledge Exchange within the context of Universities
  • Assessing new Technology Disclosures
  • Intellectual Property Rights
  • Market and Competitor Analysis
  • Market Intelligence Resources
  • The Process of Commercialisation
  • Finance and Investment
The training is expected to begin mid September 2012 - exact date to be confirmed. Bursaries of up to £2,000 are available. Duration of the Fellowship is 6 months and will be structured to fit around your research and study schedule.

If interested please submit your CV and covering letter to both Tas Gohir and Rajinder Bhuhi.
The covering letter should clearly explain:
  • Why you are interested in this opportunity
  • What value you could add in this position
If you wish to attend the training sessions without applying to the Enterprise Fellowship Programme, you are welcome to do so - simply register your interest with Tas and Rajinder by email.

For more information contact:
Rajinder Bhuhi, Enterprise Learning Officer
Tas Gohir, Intellectual Property Manager

This is a collaboration between the Careers Service & Enterprise and Business Development

Finding our training

I had some feedback last week that searching PROSE is not the easiest way to find out what library training is on offer.

We sympathise with you! An alternative is to look at the list of training on our Researchers page

Or you can look at brand new guide to the Postgraduate Researcher Workshop Programme

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk



Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk
