Cyclotron Road is the world’s leading entrepreneurial fellowship program for hard technology innovators working to solve humanity’s biggest challenges. Our goal is simple: allow innovators to mature their ideas to the point where the most suitable commercial partners can take over. We currently support 23 innovators as fellows in our immersive 2-year program that includes 1:1 mentorship, weekly educational sessions, community events, and exposure to potential investors and other partners.
The Program Operations Associate will be hired as a full-time employee of Activation Energy* with competitive salary and full benefits. The Program Operations Associate will be tasked with taking a data-driven approach to the execution and operational improvement of the Cyclotron Road program by 1) managing and analyzing data (i.e. fellowship and project) to extract key insights and 2) supporting the operations of essential aspects of the fellowship program and related Activation Energy projects.
*About Cyclotron Road and Activation Energy
Cyclotron Road is a fellowship program based in Berkeley, CA. As Cyclotron Road fellows, leading technology innovators are embedded at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for two years while they advance a project with the potential for global impact. Since 2015, Cyclotron Road has awarded more than $13 million directly to 41 fellows, who have gone on to generate more than $48 million in early-stage funding to support their projects.
Cyclotron Road is managed as a partnership between Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Activation Energy, an independent nonprofit organization. This partnership provides a platform for deep engagement with both public and private sector partners, allowing Cyclotron Road to more effectively address the most critical barriers facing our innovators as they move their ideas from concept to product. Cyclotron Road is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, DARPA, the California Energy Commission, and a number of the world’s most influential corporations and philanthropies.
