Positions in technology transfer may be a good fit for graduates with degrees in science, technology, engineering, math or law, says Arctic founder Gina Stewart. Tech-transfer offices at universities are responsible for commercializing and patenting research, Stewart explains in this blog post. "Tech-transfer case managers work closely with faculty inventors, with patent and contract lawyers, and with both established and start-up businesses. They are considered to be university administrators and often have access to faculty-level benefits packages but not to tenure," Stewart writes.
