Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences

Ocean Life, Planet Health

Senior Research Scientists

Our Senior Research Scientists (SRSs) are the heart of Bigelow Laboratory, which would not exist without them. They produce the ideas and projects that are presented as grant proposals to a variety of public and private funding sources. Their research funding pays the salaries, purchases the equipment, and covers most of the operational costs of running the Laboratory. 

The Laboratory's Senior Research Scientists work across three core areas of ocean science: Marine Microbiology and Blue Biotechnology, Ocean Biogeochemistry and Climate Change, and Ocean Health and Marine Ecosystem Function.
