Executive Administrative Assistant, Research


Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) addresses critical challenges facing our oceans, human health and the environment through innovative scientific research and education. By bringing world-class science and transformative workforce development to Gloucester’s historic waterfront, GMGI is catalyzing the regional economy.

Founded in 2013, a strategy triad guides our work and includes: a state-of-the-art research institute where we conduct marine research powered by genomics; the Gloucester Biotechnology Academy (Academy), a hands-on vocational program which trains young adults to become biotech and biomanufacturing lab technicians; and our science community, expanding the local economy as we build a vibrant science hub on Cape Ann. GMGI is in a high-growth mode with a fantastic team ready to lead the organization into its next chapter.

Reporting to the Chief Scientific Officer (CSO), the Executive Administrative Assistant will provide general support to the CSO, Donald G. Comb Science Director, and the Senior Director of Protein Science and Innovation, who together lead the organization’s research initiatives. The successful candidate will be a self-starter who will aid in general operations including meeting and event planning and logistics, document preparation for the Board of Directors and other correspondence, managing outreach efforts and other Academy admissions operations, and supporting data management related to education initiatives and outcomes, among other mission-critical responsibilities. This is a tremendous opportunity to join a rapidly growing, high-impact organization.
