Senior Patent Associate

Biospark is seeking a senior patent associate to join its team! You ideally:

  • Have an advanced degree (preferably Ph.D.) in a biology or chemistry discipline
  • Have 7-8 years of patent counseling and prosecution experience for biotech / pharma clients
  • Are looking for an intellectual challenge without sacrificing a rewarding work-life balance
  • Hold yourself and others to high standards
  • Seek out and embrace growth opportunities
  • Are attentive to and precise with details
  • Proactively manage your work and schedule

While this role is intended to be full-time, we will consider a stellar candidate with a flexible schedule who is able to commit on average at least 25-30 hours a week to the position.

We would anticipate travel for team meetings to occur twice a year, with potential additional travel for conferences and client meetings.

Join our growing practice! Please submit resume, cover letter (including a vision of where you would like to see yourself career-wise in the next 3-5 years), salary preferences, desired billable hour targets, and writing samples to sjm@biospark-ip.com.
