Senior Scientist and Program Lead, Marine Stress and Ocean Health Program
Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life, New England Aquarium

We seek a dynamic, creative and accomplished Senior Research Scientist with a proven fundraising and publication record in the broad realm of ocean health to lead the Marine Animal Stress and Ocean Health (MSOH) Program in the Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life (ACCOL) at the New England Aquarium (NEAq). The MSOH Program was founded in 1999, and conducts ground-breaking research on ocean health in marine wildlife. The program includes a dedicated laboratory for marine endocrinology including studies of stress, reproductive and metabolic hormones in marine mammals and sea turtles. The successful candidate would be conducting cutting edge ocean health work in a complementary field of study. We particularly seek a candidate with experience scaling his/her work to the population and/or ecosystem level with a conservation-driven focus. The senior scientist position is expected to integrate his/her own established research program into a successful ACCOL legacy program/laboratory in stress and reproductive endocrinology, health assessment and ocean health, and collaborate with other research/conservation efforts across the ACCOL/NEAq. While salary coverage is available for this position, ACCOL senior scientific staff members must develop/maintain independent, externally-funded, and internationally-recognized ocean conservation research programs, with specific fundraising targets.
