Visiting Investigator appointments are initiated by a written request from the sponsoring member of the Scientific or Technical Staff, including the candidate’s curriculum vitae. The file is forwarded via the Department Chair or Center Director to Human Resources for review and approval. The Director for Research must also approve the file and the suggested salary before the appointment is finalized.
Salary will be determined based on the type of work being performed compared to other similar positions at the Institution as well as internal equity factors (education and experience) among incumbents within those positions. As these positions are temporary, not to exceed twelve months, they are not part of the annual merit review process.
Visiting Investigators may apply for further WHOI employment through normal application procedures.
