Professor Dan Tchernov began his faculty-level career as the director of the Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences (IUI-Eilat, Asst. Professor at Hebrew University, 2004-2009).  During this period he turned a relatively stagnant marine station into an active and up-and-coming facility including orchestrating the construction and delivery of the first research vessel placed in the Red Sea by Israel as well as Israel’s first technical scientific diving center.  From there, he founded the Marine Biology Department at the Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences University of Haifa (2009 -2017) and founded the M. Kahn Marine Research Station (opened 2016). Professor Tchernov is currently the scientific director of the M. Kahn Marine Research Station that executes marine operations such as routine deep CCR tri-mix exploration and support dives, shark and large fish tagging, ROV operations in the eastern Mediterranean and other underwater observatory servicing
