Scholars are chosen through a highly competitive process, and for this and other reasons, these appointments carry special recognition at the Institution. Each recipient is encouraged to pursue his or her own research interests in association with a member of the Resident Scientific or Senior Technical Staff. Each award recipient is provided with office and laboratory space in close proximity to the resident staff acting as sponsor and general advisor throughout the award period.
Communication with potential WHOI advisors prior to submitting an application is encouraged. We will make sure that any staff member you mention as a potential sponsor has an opportunity to review your application. The best way to obtain more information about ongoing research here is via the individual Department, Center and Institute web pages found on the Research Areas page.
