The Cyprus Marine and Maritime Institute (CMMI) is currently seeking applications for scientific positions in CMMI’s Marine Biotechnology and Aquaculture Centre (MBAC), located in Cyprus. These positions initially offer fixed-term contracts with the possibility of renewal.
“We are looking for enthusiastic candidates willing to engage in activities related to the aquaculture sector, marine biotechnology applications, and novel methodologies for monitoring marine and coastal ecosystems,” it said.
CMMI is a non-profit research, innovation, and technology development organisation established in Cyprus. It is supported by EU funds through the Teaming program, along with the Government of Cyprus and established industry stakeholders. CMMI brings together expertise from local universities, industry, and international partners.
MBAC focuses on various areas of interest, including aquaculture with a focus on innovative feeding methods, reproductive physiology, and applications of Integrated Multitrophic Aquaculture (IMTA). Additionally, it covers marine biotechnology and novel methods for monitoring the marine environment. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to leverage CMMI’s vast network and industry and academia links, including collaborations with international Advanced Partners such as the University of Southampton’s SMMI, the Marine Institute (Ireland), and Bluewise Marine (Ireland).
Based on their expertise and level of position, successful candidates will contribute to various CMMI projects, self-funded initiatives, EU/RIF-funded projects, educational and training activities, and provide services to industry and governmental organisations. They will also play a part in developing necessary facilities and critical infrastructure for the centre, assist with administrative tasks, and contribute to the preparation of research proposals.
Candidates will have the chance to build upon their existing research track record and receive support in developing new skills and interests that align with CMMI’s projects. They will have the opportunity to explore diverse topics and contribute to the growth of CMMI, a young and vibrant organisation.
Applicants must hold a MSc in one of the following principles: environmental biology, marine biotechnology, marine biology, marine sciences, life sciences, chemistry, or a closely related field. They must also have skills and expertise relevant to the centre’s scope (including but not limited to aquaculture, marine biotechnology and marine monitoring).
