For Scientists

TritoniaSeeking Marine Biologists or Marine Life Scientists
MarineBio is currently seeking marine life and conservation academics/professionals to serve on our board of advisors. Each advisor is given the title of Director for the area of his/her expertise. For example, Erich Hoyt and Dr. James Wood are Directors of Marine Mammals and Cephalopods, respectively.

These are volunteer positions. Once we're funded we will compensate our board of advisors for any work above and beyond what's possible in their volunteer capacity.

Each Director of a marine species group is responsible for creating and suggesting new content or updates to content on the MarineBio Network concerning their area of expertise. Board members are also expected to promote MarineBio's work through their contacts and networks. In exchange, MarineBio will promote the work of each Director as much as possible and/or desired.

We are currently looking for Directors for the following marine groups:

Marine Birds
Marine Fishes
Marine Reptiles
