If you just started your postdoctoral appointment at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution you might want to consider to following advice to make the process of settling down a bit easier for you:

  • You should contact Janet Fields, the Postdoctoral Coordinator, if you have not yet done so.
  • If you want, you can contact the Post Doctoral Association ( to set up a time to get together, to take a tour of Woods Hole, or to ask questions about getting settled down and oriented.
  • Last but not least you might want to consider to subscribe to the informal postdoc e-mail list. It is a low-traffic list that carries notices like movie and party announcements, car and yard sale information, requests for pet- and house-sitters, and notices of available cruise berths.
