Interested in invention, innovation and startups?
Intellectual Ventures (IV) is built around our simple belief that there is a better way to invent and commercialize the next generation of technology. Taking ideas from our network of some of the world’s top inventors and bringing in talented entrepreneurs to turn those ideas into high-growth, disruptive companies, our impact is seen in the numerous spinout companies we have launched. Based on breakthrough research in metamaterials, nuclear engineering, thermionic emission, and more we have created more than 15 new companies. Our spinouts have raised more than $700M in venture capital funding.
We seek a creative, action-oriented, self-directed scientist with a background in the area of superconductivity, correlated electrons, density functional theory, physics and/or material science to serve as the leader to develop early stage inventions in the architected materials space. You will be creating novel technologies, develop/execute a research strategy and take products to market through appropriate pathways (startup spin out, joint venture, etc.). This position will be located in the Deep Science Fund.
The successful candidate will be a world-class scientist with a relevant technical background, have both a strong desire to lead their own commercial enterprise and the ability to define and create such an opportunity.
You will be expected to:
Provide scientific and technical leadership and overall project vision
Interface with business development team to define and quantify the potential business opportunities
Lead the filing of any relevant new intellectual property
Create and manage a team of technologists and experts where some/all of their team may be virtual
Be responsible for directing project budgeting and resource management
Maintain project schedules, track key deliverables, progress toward milestones, timelines, resources, and costs; create and manage to risk mitigation and contingency strategies
Work within the Fund Management and other project team within the Fund to coordinate budgets, resource allocation, and timelines to meet external deadlines

Report regularly on project progress
Coordinate and lead team meetings and stakeholder meetings
Support quarterly founder reviews by ensuring on-time preparation and delivery of required pre- reads and presentations
Key Qualifications and Required Skills:
PhD or advanced degree relevant to superconductivity, correlated electrons, density functional theory, physics and/or material science or related field; additional research/job experience after the PhD is a plus; experience with both modeling and experimental work is a strong plus
Demonstrated or potential for world-class scientific leadership
Experience or strong potential for leadership in a high-tech startup environment
Sufficiently wide technical background to engage on technical basis with scientists, investigators, and investors regarding the progress, prospects, and issues for diverse projects.
