The Gulf of Maine Research Institute has just opened the search for a new Chief Scientific Officer. Full details can be found here: https://recruiting.paylocity.com/Recruiting/Jobs/Details/451541

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) is an independent marine research, education, and community institution located in Portland, Maine. We pioneer collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges. We investigate dynamic ocean systems, from marine life to environmental conditions to coastal economies. We leverage our regional significance as a testbed for adapting to environmental change. We are dedicated to the resilience of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem and the communities that depend on it.

The Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) at GMRI will lead a multidisciplinary team of world-class scientists conducting marine research to better understand and steward the Gulf of Maine ecosystem—from its physical dynamics to its human communities. The CSO will apply a systems approach to develop scientific priorities, conduct research, pioneer collaborative solutions to global ocean challenges, and help shape the conversation around climate change and ecosystem sustainability at the local, national, and international levels. Equally important, the successful candidate will be joining an entrepreneurial and energetic management team that embraces a collegial and collaborative culture around strategic planning, organizational policy development, and decision-making, and strives to achieve applied solutions and knowledge transfer through innovative, out of the box thinking.
