Horn Point Laboratory is an internationally recognized center of expertise in bivalve ecology and is home to the Broddus and Margaret Ann Jones Oyster Culture Facility, one of the largest oyster hatcheries on the East Coast. The manager will work closely with three UMCES-HPL faculty (Louis Plough, Matt Gray, and Greg Silsbe) whose diverse expertise will help spur innovations in the aquaculture field. As an experimental laboratory, a top candidate will have a keen eye for detail, and experience in the design and execution of experiments.
