Fellows Program

CommerceNet seeks a few entrepreneurial researchers interested in utilizing the Internet to radically alter the status quo and introduce novel approaches to long-standing problems. Ideal candidates are passionate and talented self-starters with both research and entrepreneurial interests. These positions typically last a year or so and may lead to Open Source initiatives, start ups, or research programs that can be transferred to more traditional labs.

Why Join Our Team?
We focus on transforming innovative ideas into companies and helping researchers become entrepreneurs. We also seed startup companies and sponsor a range of Open Source initiatives. Fellows have the freedom to explore their ideas, and receive support for prototyping, experimentation, trial deployments, and collaboration. They also have the opportunity to interact with other entrepreneurs and be mentored by CommerceNet’s network of senior advisors.

How to Apply
Email a statement of interest, resume or CV, and references directly to the Executive Director. Fellowships are fixed-term appointments and include a competitive compensation package commensurate with education and experience. New and recent graduates are welcomed, as are people currently working in research labs who crave more personal freedom and benefits. Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
