The Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, located in Bar Harbor, Maine, is an independent biomedical research institution undergoing rapid growth and development. We are seeking outstanding scientists for recruitment at the Assistant Professor level. Successful applicants will be expected to develop research programs focused on the biology of aging and/or regeneration using state-of-the-art genomic, genetic and molecular approaches and utilizing non-mammalian model organisms such as C. elegans and zebrafish. New scientific approaches and technologies that could have a significant impact on these areas are also of interest as is a commitment to translating relevant discoveries into new tools and therapies. Candidates must possess a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, have a strong record of continuous research productivity, and have either active funding or clearly demonstrated potential for independent funding.
The MDI Biological Laboratory provides a uniquely collaborative and multidisciplinary research environment, outstanding scientific resources, and at least 80% protected time for development and maintenance of independent, externally funded faculty research programs. Start-up packages and salary are highly competitive and commensurate with current rank and experience. Successful candidates will have appointments in the Davis Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine, an NIH-funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence, and the opportunity for adjunct appointments at neighboring academic institutions, including the University of Maine.
