USTR IPR Position Open For Applicants

The Office of the US Trade Representative has an opening for an IP position that closes May 20, 2013. The position is described here: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/342686700. The position was originally slated to close May 10 and is now open for another 10 days, until May 20.

The job notice states that the position is for a policy analyst who may serve as “Director for Intellectual Property and Innovation / Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Intellectual Property and Innovation” and notes that it could be filled at various levels.

The position appears intended to address a vacancy left by the recent departure of Kira Alvarez, who had most recently served as a Deputy Assistant US Trade Representative. Kira had been ably working on China-related IP matters among other issues during her recent tenure at USTR. We all wish Kira well.
