The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution offers several types of postdoctoral awards. A term appointment to the position of Postdoctoral Scholar, Fellow, or Investigator may be offered to an individual who has completed the requirements for a Ph.D. degree. The degree may or may not have been officially awarded; a letter from the individual's university asserting that he or she has completed all of the requirements for the degree is satisfactory for establishing eligibility for the position. Each type of postdoctoral appointment has a slightly different selection and appointment procedure.
Postdoctoral Investigator positions are available at the Institution. Investigators normally will be required to conduct research and studies in areas directly relevant to existing grants or contracts.
