Educational Activities

The Ocean Exploration Institute conducts activities to educate the next generation of scientists, and to broadly communicate scientific results in a timely, objective, and effective manner to all segments of society. These activities include postdoctoral appointments, graduate student positions, Geodynamics Seminar Series, and bringing oceanographic cruises to students and the general public via the World Wide Web.

Postdoctoral Scholars

With the aim of fostering interdisciplinary research addressing processes in the deep ocean, fellowships are available to support research associated with the OEI themes.

Each year, OEI presents an award to a graduate student of the MIT/WHOI Joint Graduate Program whose research interests fit within the Institute's themes.

K-12 Activities

OEI supports Dive and Discover, an online expedition website that immerses you in the excitement of ocean exploration.
