For many graduates and post-graduates, finding a job which enables them to apply their research and academic knowledge to a real world situation can be challenging. Bridging the gap between the academic and  commercial spaces is a rare privilege too.

Working as an Associate within a KTP could offer the perfect solution: a key part of the partnership team, Associates effectively act as the project manager on a KTP, liaising between the company and the university to access, apply and develop the most relevant, up to date and impactful knowledge to progress the innovation challenge at the heart of the KTP project.

Unique in many respects, the Associate role has provided and continues to provide exceptional launchpads for careers as diverse as data science to new product development,  chemical engineering to environmental impact analysis.
