applicants to be a collaborative leader and Science Director of the  
Center. The Science Director will be appointed to the faculty of a  
department at Stanford University and as a Senior Fellow in the Woods  
Institute for the Environment.

COS works to develop practical and sustainable solutions to the major  
environmental challenges facing the ocean through research, outreach,  
and education. A collaboration among Stanford University (including  
the Hopkins Marine Station and Woods Institute for the Environment),  
the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research  
Institute (MBARI), COS combines Stanford’s expertise in marine  
biology, oceanography, engineering, economics, law, and policy, with  
the Aquarium’s success at public education and outreach, and MBARI’s  
leadership in deep-sea technology, exploration, and monitoring. COS is  
headquartered in Monterey, California, near the Hopkins Marine  
Station, Aquarium, andMBARI. More information about COS is available  
at www.centerforoceansolutions.org.

We seek a motivated, broad-thinking scientist to establish a vigorous  
research program and provide scientific leadership for COS while  
complementing existing expertise at Stanford, the Aquarium, MBARI, and  
other nearby academic and research institutions. In addition to  
serving as Science Director, the successful candidate will teach  
classes at the graduate and undergraduate level and supervise  
research. We are particularly interested in candidates with a record  
of public engagement on scientific issues and a familiarity with the  
intersection of science and public policy.

Applicants in all areas of marine science and oceanography are  
welcome. The Science Director will collaborate with scientists and  
policy makers engaged in a broad range of activities, including  
observations, modeling, theory and laboratory experiments, technology  
development, and policy analysis and development. The Science Director  
will work closely with the Executive Director on the development,  
funding, and implementation of projects and initiatives undertaken by  
COS and in setting the science direction for COS. The Science Director  
will be based in Monterey, with research facilities at the Hopkins  
Marine Station, and will also be expected to maintain a presence on  
the main campus.

Women and minority applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.  
Applicants should have a doctoral degree and a publication record in  
the marine sciences or oceanography, a demonstrated track record of  
leadership, excellent communications and management skills, and  
experience in collaborative research and partnership building. The
