Katcall: Openings for a GuestKat and InternKat!

Are you passionate about IP? We have exciting news for you!

The IPKat is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for GuestKat posts and looking for an IP enthusiast to fill an InternKat position.

GuestKat and InternKat positions are six months (with the possibility of extension), and there are no geographical restrictions on either role. Please bear in mind that you need to have your employer’s permission to be part of the IPKat team.


Typically, GuestKats are in an advanced stage of their career. They contribute to keeping the blog fresh by providing unique perspectives on cutting-edge topics in their field of expertise.

We are looking for an individual interested in blogging with strong IP expertise and good writing skills.

The GuestKat will work with a member of the permanent IPKat team and is expected to contribute an average of four posts per month, including round-up posts (example). 

Being a GuestKat provides an exceptional opportunity to bring your posts to a large audience around the world and further develop your IP network.

The EIO requires providing CV details, a motivation statement, and a writing sample. Apply here.

A list of previous GuestKats can be reviewed here.


Typically, InternKats are graduate students, trainees, recently qualified people, or IP enthusiasts in career transitions.

InternKats are responsible for Never Too Late posts (example), updating the events calendar (here), and reporting the IPKat blog's monthly statistics and analytics. In addition, InternKats are invited to write independent posts once a month.

We are looking for a keen IP enthusiast to fill the InternKat position. The selected candidate will receive mentoring and guidance from a member of the permanent IPKat team and training for the role's tasks. Previous applicants are encouraged to apply.

Applications should contain CV details, a motivation statement, and a writing sample. Apply here.

The deadline for applying to GuestKat and InternKat applications is Friday, 14 June 2024 (midnight GMT). Successful candidates will start in July 2024.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
