Oceans and Human Health - Cancer and Aging - Marine Molecular Biology

Applications are invited from scientists with interests in oceans and human health, cancer and aging research using marine organisms, and marine molecular biology to complement research and education activities at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS). This is an endowed position with hard salary support for a 0.5FTE Assistant Scientist with research interests in cancer and aging in model marine organisms. The successful candidate would be expected to fill out his/her annual salary with successful solicitations for grant funding to governmental agencies and/or philanthropic sources which, at the candidate’s discretion, would be utilized to further research on oceans and human health or more broadly in marine molecular biology/genomics and/or microbial ecology. We are looking for a candidate with established collaborative relationships with a research group working in his/her area of interest with a potential for developing collaborative activities with existing BIOS research programs. Although primarily a research position, opportunities exist for teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate level (http://www.bios.edu/education/). We invite applications from scientists at the entry level of Assistant Scientist, with a recent Ph.D. degree in an appropriate field required. Postdoctoral experience is desirable. Joint faculty appointments with other research institutions will be encouraged, in particular with institutions having established research programs relevant to cancer and aging using model marine organisms.
