The IAP is an interdisciplinary clinic devoted to a wide array of legal and business planning services for inventors, technology entrepreneurs, tech transfer professionals, and emerging technology companies. The Director will be expected to lead all aspects of the IAP’s operations including: educating students in both classroom and live client formats, identifying and choosing clients, recruiting students, curriculum development, relationship building within the university, relationship building with the Arizona entrepreneurial ecosystem, and fund raising activities.

Preferred applicants will have demonstrated experience as a leader in the field or the potential to become a leading figure in the field, an interest in the business side of entrepreneurship and startups (not just the legal issues they face), and ability to foster relationships with faculty and departments across the university, and an interest in building relationships in the Arizona entrepreneurial community.
