Description

Director, Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

Solomons, Maryland

Guiding our state, nation, and world toward a more sustainable future

 

The Opportunity

The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) seeks a Director of the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) who is a visionary leader with a passion for promoting collaboration and innovation in environmental science. We seek a respected scientist with strong interpersonal skills to join us in a key leadership role that emphasizes inter- and trans-disciplinary research, teamwork, and fostering of a supportive workplace. A “Globally Eminent, Locally Relevant” institution, CBL has a long history of leadership in the science of coastal and ocean environments and their watersheds, from local to international regions. For almost 100 years, we have been dedicated to advancing the environmental sciences through discovery, integration, application, and education across the world, including science leadership in the Chesapeake Bay — the nation’s largest estuarine system. 

The Director leads by example and is responsible for the academic and administrative leadership of CBL, including inspiring excellence across the Laboratory and institution. The Director oversees faculty and staff, administers facilities, develops and manages the Laboratory budget, plans and implements program directions for research, leads fundraising activities, and promotes public outreach and science engagement. The Director is a member of the UMCES executive leadership team and reports directly to the university president.

 

University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science

UMCES is one of twelve universities in the University System of Maryland (USM). UMCES encompasses a network of six units across Maryland, including CBL in southern Maryland, the Appalachian Laboratory in western Maryland, the Horn Point Laboratory on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology in Baltimore, the Maryland Sea Grant College in College Park, and the Integration and Application Network in Annapolis. UMCES is home to some 350 scientific and support staff, including 75 faculty members and a similar number of graduate students who engage in cutting-edge research and science application within the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem and in locations around the world. UMCES awards M.S. and Ph.D. degrees and aims to expand its educational programming. 

UMCES faculty engage in research and advisory work across multiple disciplines encompassing such research areas as ocean, coastal, and estuarine dynamics and ecology; environmental chemistry and toxicology; fisheries ecology, management, and aquaculture; molecular and microbial processes; terrestrial ecology and land management; water resources and watersheds; marine biotechnology; climate and energy; and environmental entrepreneurship. UMCES serves as a trusted scientific advisor to state, national and international leaders, providing world-class research to inform public policy, while educating future scientists to meet the global environmental challenges of the 21st century.

Our assets and strengths include:

      Global eminence and innovation: Outstanding research across diverse disciplines at local, regional, national, and international scales.
