Position Summary

Columbia Technology Ventures (CTV) runs a number of validation and industry partnership programs. Its Business Development (BD), Industry Relations Group (IRG), and Lab-to-Market (L2M) teams collaborate regularly on multiple initiatives, which calls for a coordinated approach for certain functions spanning across these teams, leading to unlocking additional synergies.

The Alliance Administrator will operate across BD, IRG, and L2M teams to ensure key logistical and administrative activities are coordinated/aligned. Alliance Administrator reports directly to the Industry Relations Director, but works closely with each of the managers for BD/IRG/L2M.

DIVERSITY MISSION STATEMENT

Columbia is dedicated to increasing diversity in its workforce, its student body, and its educational programs. Achieving continued academic excellence and creating a vibrant university community require nothing less.

Both to prepare our students for citizenship in a pluralistic world and to keep Columbia at the forefront of knowledge, the University seeks to recognize and draw upon the talents of a diverse range of outstanding faculty, research officers, staff, and students and to foster the free exploration and expression of differing ideas, beliefs, and perspectives through scholarly inquiry and civil discourse. In developing its academic programs, Columbia furthers the thoughtful examination of cultural distinctions by developing curricula that prepare students to be responsible members of diverse societies.

In fulfilling its mission to advance diversity at the University, Columbia seeks to hire, retain, and promote exceptionally talented women and men from different racial, cultural, economic and ethnic backgrounds regardless of their sexual orientation or disability status. Through effective and fully compliant affirmative action and equal opportunity policies, Columbia strives to recruit members of groups traditionally underrepresented in American higher education and to increase the number of minority and women candidates in its graduate and professional programs.
