With the summer almost upon us, the tours of many diplomats posted overseas are slated to end. No less so with IPR-diplomats.
Chris Adams will be departing from his post as USTR’s representative in China. The notice for his job posting is available here: http://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/PrintPreview/317283100 . Chinese language is no longer mandatory for this position, but is highly desirable.
Other positions at the USPTO offices in China are also likely to be posted soon. Stay tuned.
As for me, I have been advising the Under Secretary of the USPTO, and Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office in the United States since earlier this spring on a part time basis. Just to be clear, however, the postings in this blog may not represent the position of the US government, but are instead my personal observations.
