Gloucester, MA, USA
Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) is Gloucester's exciting new independent marine biotechnology research institute. Founded in 2013 by three prominent scientist entrepreneurs, with legendary experience in the biotechnology field, GMGI is positioned to influence a new era of discovery and innovation, based on the genomic science of marine-derived research topics. In addition, GMGI has launched a biotechnology training academy and is committed to establishing beautiful Cape Ann as a world-class science hub. GMGI will use the modern tools of genomics and proteomics to bring new science to study the rich marine biodiversity and environment of the North Atlantic and beyond, and currently has projects focused on the genomics of key regional species, marine ecosystems, environmental genomics assays, and population genetics of commercially important fishery species. It is envisioned that GMGI will evolve into an eminent research institute focused on using the tools of genomics and proteomics to carry out marine research. GMGI will also focus on practical applications of marine-derived molecules and materials that may be of commercial value. By extension, these new opportunities will enable formation of startup companies, leveraging any resulting intellectual property and innovations, and produce a powerful economic driver that will sustain the future Cape Ann economy and offer the region's citizens with exciting new career paths. We are offering an extraordinary opportunity to serve as GMGI's first Science Director. The first Science Director will have overall responsibility for developing GMGI's research vision as well as overseeing the design and build out of our permanent research facility on the harbor, that will house state of the art laboratories for genomic and proteomic research. In addition, the Director will be responsible for building a world-class scientific team that can compete for external funding. The Science Director will also drive GMGI's growing network of collaborations. This position is an extraordinary opportunity for an ambitious entrepreneurial scientist who is interested in helping create a world-class research institute.Something looks off?
