New and returning Researchers:
BMSC hosts visiting investigators throughout the year from our member universities and from institutions worldwide.
Priority is given to applications received from investigators from our member universities, and is subject to availability of facilities, equipment and housing. The application process will vary depending on the nature of your research project.
Applications for the summer research season (May 1 – Sept 30) are due April 30 of the same year.
While we welcome researchers year-round, housing space and lab facilities can be limiting during the busy summer instructional period; we thus encourage researchers to consider visiting in the fall, winter, or spring.
Applicants for research space should review the Research Policies that are adhered to at BMSC and determine if and how they will influence your research plans. There are specific policies relating to boat use, collecting organisms, SCUBA diving, animal care, exotic species restrictions, and biohazard and radiation safety.
