Patent Agent Trainees
Stemming from our recent and successful merger with Toronto’s Sim & McBurney | Sim Ashton & McKay LLP, Marks & Clerk Canada is expanding! Our growing Ottawa office has some exciting and challenging opportunities, and we are seeking two Patent Agent Trainees to join our Chemistry & Life Sciences and Mechanical & Electronics teams.
Marks & Clerk is recognised as one of the world’s leading intellectual property firms with offices in Canada, the UK, Europe and Asia. Our global reach and unmatched depth and breadth of expertise present unique and exciting opportunities for those working with us.
For the role with our Mechanical & Electronics team, you will at minimum have gained a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering, and preferably you will have at least two years’ experience working in industry.
For the role with our Chemistry & Life Sciences team, you will have gained a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and/or immunology, and preferably you will have at least two years’ experience working in research or industry.
In addition, you need to have excellent communication skills and meticulous attention to detail. You need to demonstrate technical excellence, an interest in the commercial world and appreciate the importance of intellectual property to business. Due to the international nature of the work, foreign languages are an advantage but not essential.
Working as a Patent Agent requires not only an excellent technical and academic background but the ability to draft comprehensive documents and complex legal arguments. It is a challenging and rewarding role, enabling you to be involved with cutting edge research, and understand and support the commercial objectives of a diverse worldwide client base.
We pride ourselves on hiring and retaining the top talent in the industry who can draw on experience and demonstrate the passion and commitment to deliver exceptional client services. If you have the right qualifications, outlook, and ambition and are ready to perform at the top of your game, please contact, Andrée Lafrance, Ottawa Office Manager (email@example.com).
