Hi all!

for cross-posting. See below for details:

Title: Director
Organization: Cape Eleuthera Institute <http://ceibahamas.org/>
Location: Eleuthera, The Bahamas
Type: Full Time
Posted: Jan 18, 2018
Open: Until filled

The Cape Eleuthera Institute <http://ceibahamas.org/> is seeking a
*Director *to lead this established research station with numerous ongoing
projects and a team of research staff, interns and graduate students. The
institute, founded in 2006, is situated on Cape Eleuthera, Eleuthera, The
Bahamas and prides itself in reinventing the paradigm of how science gets
funded, executed and communicated. Over the last decade the institute has
expanded its portfolio of marine ecology and conservation related research
to include every major marine ecosystem in the greater Caribbean region,
including coastal, coral reef, pelagic, and deep ocean habitats.

This position would suit either an established scientist or an experienced
research manager, who is excited to lead, support and mentor a team of
young scientists. The ideal candidate should be enthusiastic about working
at a non-traditional academic institution that believes in integrating
education at every level into primary research. Suitable candidates must
have a diverse and entrepreneurial approach to funding science and
education and experience fundraising in diverse arenas including
traditional ‘hard money’ grants and ‘soft money’ from private donors.

The ideal candidate is well-organized, a self-starter who takes initiative,
has a passion for environmental conservation and a love of teaching
students of all ages. They must be willing to live and work closely with
the local community and wider organisation including The Island School
<http://islandschool.org/>, The Centre for Sustainable Development
<http://csdbahamas.org/>, the Deep Creek Middle School
<http://dcmsbahamas.org/>, and our Educational Programs and Outreach
Divisions. This position goes beyond the traditional 9-5 role and we are
looking for an invested candidate who is committed to a full time, on-site
position that requires dedication to our organisational philosophy, our
community and its people. Preference will be given to suitably qualified
Bahamians who are strongly encouraged to apply.

Job open until filled.
