Funding: For Students
The ASRC Sensor CAT supports workforce development programs for CUNY students through:
STEM Entrepreneurship Workshops and Trainings
Entrepreneurship and Tech Transfer Course
Fall 2023 Course Information Coming Soon
This innovative course will be co-instructed by Prof. Rein Ulijn, Director of Nanoscience Initiative and the ASRC Sensor CAT, and Prof. Scott Newbert, Director of Baruch's Field Center for Entrepreneurship.
This course is ideal for PhD students in the sciences or Master's students in Nanoscience who have developed a technology in the lab and is curious to find out how to transfer the idea into a prototype and a business model. Students with entrepreneurial spirits who do not have original ideas are also encouraged to participate using CUNY TCO's technology available for licensing as an example to develop their project.
The CAT is a partner with LifeSci NYC and funds summer opportunities for industrial internships with companies in the Life Sciences industry.
In partnership with NanoBioNYC, a PhD Leadership Workshop Series was offered to provide students with technical and interpersonal skills that prepare students for internship and/or a job in academia and industry.
Sensor CAT can provide funded fellowship opportunities for graduate students or postdoctoral research associates who will carry out short (~6 months) to long term (~12 months) industry funded projects.
