WHOI Postdoctoral Scholar Program

We invite applications for eighteen-month Postdoctoral Scholarships that are designed to extend the education and training of the applicants and to advance their research careers. WHOI is the largest private, non-profit Oceanographic Institution in the world. 

WHOI’s Postdoctoral Scholars conduct independent research in association with one or more members of the Resident Scientific or Senior Technical Staff. Communication with potential WHOI advisors prior to submitting an application is highly recommended, and sponsor support for research activities will be considered in the award selection.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to WHOI’s academic excellence and leadership in the global scientific community. WHOI stands committed to a sustained effort to advance inclusion and belonging throughout all levels of the Institution. A goal of the Postdoctoral Scholar Program is the long-term broadening of participation in ocean science and engineering, and we particularly encourage women, minorities, veterans, those with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups to apply.

Applications are required by October 15, 2023. Recipients of the 2024-2025 awards will receive an annual stipend of at least $70,000 for an 18-month appointment, plus relocation and health and welfare allowances. Limited support is also available for travel expenses, equipment, supplies, and special services.

Please consider to apply, particularly if you are in Physical Oceanography, Atmospheric Science/Meteorology, Maths, Physics or related fields! Interested? See what we do: https://www.whoi.edu/what-we-do/understand/departments-centers-labs/po/po-research/
