Position Summary:

The Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) invites applications for faculty positions at the Assistant/Associate level. The MBL is engaged in a major expansion in the areas of (1) microbial diversity and ecology across environments; (2) adaptation and resilience to rapidly changing environments; (3) cutting edge imaging and computational image analysis; and (4) the biology of aquatic organisms. A successful candidate will establish an independent research program that bridges these areas and intersects with one or more of the MBL’s three year-round research centers. Research in the Bay Paul Center employs comparative genomic approaches to understand the complex patterns and mechanisms that make possible the persistence and diversity of life on earth. Research in the Bell Center broadly focuses on cell, tissue and organismal biology with particular interests in integrative and comparative approaches to key questions in developmental and regenerative biology, neurobiology, and sensory physiology and behavior. The Ecosystems Center investigates the structure and function of ecological systems to understand and predict their response to changing environmental conditions.

Additional Information:

The MBL fosters a rich intellectual environment that includes affiliations with the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, as well as a strong community of more than 100 affiliated scientists from academic institutions around the world. The collaborative research community enables the extension of highly simplified experimental systems to the greater complexities of evolutionary innovation and ecological function among diverse organisms and ecosystems.
