Lunchtime Career Session: Technology Transfer
Are you interested in a career in technology transfer, or have you considered pursuing an MBA after your postdoctoral training?
The Office of Education is offering a brown bag lunch session with Yolanda Mock Hawkins, PhD, MBA, a licensing and patenting manager at the NIH Office of Technology Transfer.
This is a great chance, in a small-group forum, for you to learn about this career path and its various job opportunities. Dr. Hawkins has served as an NIH postdoctoral fellow and the director of the NIH Academy. She completed the FAES Graduate School certificate program for technology transfer before receiving her MBA at Johns Hopkins University.
Given her experience with science careers away from the bench, you’ll get a sense of what fellows can do throughout their training to prepare for the competitive job market. Most importantly, you can hear firsthand why she decided to seek an MBA and how her scientific and business experiences led to a career in technology transfer.
