Career Opportunities

At Bigelow Laboratory, we have a big mission: to use our ocean discoveries to improve the future for all life on our planet. In order to carry that out, we need the best minds working together to explore the answers we seek. Entrepreneurial thinking, passion, resourcefulness, creativity, accountability, and transparency are all essential to our unique approach.

We believe that the greatest asset of our independent research institute is our people. We are an equal opportunity employer, acknowledging that a diversity of individuals and ideas offers dividends to strengthen our work. We promote a culture of mutual respect and responsibility, grounded in honest and open communication. We believe that every person, in every position, should have opportunities to continually learn, improve, and innovate.

Our work spans from the Arctic to the Antarctic, but our laboratory is located in East Boothbay, Maine, USA. Life in the Midcoast region of Maine is full of awe-inspiring coastline, friendly towns, and plenty of opportunities to get outdoors and explore all year long. There are nearby amenities, and the city of Portland is just a little over an hour away.
