The Business of Marine Biotechnology
The Center for Marine Science at the University of North Carolina
Wilmington is offering three exceptional research fellows in marine
biotechnology. Candidates must have a PhD in a biotechnology-related
area and are expected to conduct research in marine science laboratories
at the University while pursuing a professional MBA degree in the
University's Cameron School of Business <http://www.csb.uncw.edu/> . The
goal of this 24 month program is to produce individuals with a solid
science background as well as the business skills needed to prosper in a
modern competitive business environment. Students in the MBA portion of
the program will master the core functions of business, develop
analytical and quantitative business skills, and study current and
future business issues through real world experiences with regional
companies involved in marine biotechnology. Excellent verbal and written
skills are required.
The research portion of the program generally involves working in one of
3 focus areas: 1. Bioassay technique development focusing on novel
sensing methods with particular application in the marine environment;
2. Finfish mariculture which may include reproduction, genetics and
selective breeding, larval physiology, nutrition, health and disease
management, recirculating aquaculture technology, and commercial
demonstration; and 3. Marine pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals from
cultured organisms, bioengineered natural products, novel enzymes and
biosynthetic pathways. Candidates should clearly identify their
interests in one of the 3 focus areas in their cover letter. Candidates
with interests in other biotechnology related area will be considered
based on the strength of their application. Selected candidates would
receive salary and benefits including health insurance and retirement
contributions for 24 months. Position title will be "Visiting Research
Assistant Professor". Tuition for the coursework necessary to obtain the
MBA is also provided.
