6. President and Chief Executive Officer

The Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences invites inquiries, nominations and applications for the position of president and chief executive officer.

The significance of this leadership position and Bigelow Laboratory’s work are heightened by growing recognition that the global environment and both terrestrial and marine ecosystems are increasingly stressed. Bigelow researchers address critical issues of climate change, ocean health, seafood solutions and sustainability and the health of the planet by investigating marine microorganisms, how they affect global ocean processes and how these processes are being impacted by changing environmental conditions. Many of the complex biochemical and geophysical processes that govern our living planet remain a mystery. Basic and applied research conducted by the Bigelow Laboratory not only advance our knowledge of the Earth system, but also provide practical solutions to the pressures human civilization applies to life on Earth.
