European Patent Attorney – South Oxfordshire
Chemistry - Global Leader
Infineum is a joint venture between major petrochemical companies and a world leader in the formulation and production of petroleum additives for lubricants and fuels.
Located at Milton Hill near Didcot, South Oxfordshire, the Company HQ is investing heavily in a new multi-million pound Technology Centre which will be the fulcrum of innovation for the Company’s expanding global operations.
Inquisitive Minds, Commercial Flair
Based within the in-house law department, a rare opportunity has arisen for a European Patent Attorney to join a highly experienced team of UK, US and European patent attorneys and administrators. The candidate will work collaboratively with scientists, the R&D and sales/marketing teams as well as our customers worldwide. A strong background in chemistry with around five years commercial experience, either in-house or private practice handling a chemistry/science portfolio direct with clients, is essential. A breadth of interest in the law and science plus an open-minded, inquisitive attitude to seeking and protecting commercial differentiation and value in a crowded patent landscape, will be just some of the prerequisites required of this demanding role.
Whilst Milton Hill is the centre of gravity for Infineum’s science operations with over two hundred resident scientists, there are technical centres in the US, Japan, Singapore and China and the candidate will have to adapt to the cultural diversity of a global business. Infineum believes in the strength of its in-house team to conduct their own proceedings before USPTO and EPO Appeal Boards and conduct or manage oppositions and litigation as well as dealing with know-how, collaboration agreements, risk assessments and business advice.
Friendliness and Professionalism
Infineum supports personal development and believes in long-term career building in a friendly, collaborative and rewarding business environment. For more details of this challenging role and its many benefits contact Graham Marlow: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44(0)1423 522838
