Position Description:

ATSI is seeking a full-time dedicated Market Researcher (MR) to join our team in support of the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) & Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. The MR will be responsible for conducting research for aiding small technology firms who wish to commercialize their technologies. The MR will prepare customized reports for SBIR/STTR awarded companies, including market trends and analyses. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter (motivated) and team player.

SBIR/STTR Programs:

The SBIR program was established by Congress in 1982 with a statutory purpose to strengthen the role of innovative small business concerns (SBCs) in Federally-funded research or research and development (R/R&D). Specific program purposes are to: (1) Stimulate technological innovation; (2) use small business to meet Federal R/R&D needs; (3) foster and encourage participation by socially and economically disadvantaged SBCs in working in technological innovation; and (4) increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal R/R&D, thereby increasing competition, productivity and economic growth.

The STTR program is a sister program to SBIR, established by Congress in 1992 with a similar statutory purpose as SBIR. A major difference in the two programs is that the STTR requires the small business to have a research partner consisting of a University, Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), or a qualified non-profit research institution. In STTR, the small business must be the prime contractor and perform at least 40% of the work, with the research partner performing at least 30% of the work. The balance can be done by either party and/or a third party.  

Position Requirements:
