"Seemingly moribund research establishment" is just a very ... how shall we say... verbose way of saying "it looks like working in a research field/facility with no prospect". The entire sentence simply means:"he demonstrated great potential and enthusiasm working at a research field/facility that has no prospects." I can't tell if the author is trying to be sarcastic or something...
