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; 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 Director of Enrollment and Partnerships, Gloucester Biotechnology Academy seeks a professional with social work experience who brings the expertise necessary to assess student needs, provide direct support, and connect students with appropriate resources to help ensure their success in our program and beyond. Academy program participants are adult vocational learners with high school degrees and range in age from 19 to 32. The training they participate in lasts seven months in Gloucester and is followed by a three-month paid internship onsite with industry partners. More information about the program can be found here.
