Grant Writer

Seaventures Clam Co., an aquaculture company, is looking to hire a grant writer to apply for the National Science Foundation’s Idea Machine. They specialize in bivalves, and given the current state of our waterways, as well as the trajectory we are headed in, they see that onshore production of clams and oysters are a necessity to accommodate the acidification of the waterways. Their goal is to research how we can grow this species entirely on land with the hopes of restoring clams and oysters in the wild and sustaining food production for a growing population.

If you are interested in collaborating please email carolina@seaventuresgroup.com.
