Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
Eighteen-month Postdoctoral Scholar awards are offered annually to recipients of new or recent doctorates in the fields of chemistry, engineering, geology, geophysics, mathematics, meteorology, physics, and biology as well as oceanography. The competitive awards are designed to further the education and training of the applicant with primary emphasis placed on the individual's research promise.

In order to be eligible for one of these awards, applicants must have received their doctoral degree within the past 2-3 years. As a condition of the award, successful applicants must be able to present their diploma, a certified copy of their diploma, or a certified letter from the appropriate college or university official stating that they have completed all of the requirements for their degree including the completion of their final thesis, before they begin their scholar appointment. However, applicants do not need to have already received their degree prior to applying. It is also expected that candidates will have a command of the English language. MIT/WHOI Joint Program Students, and those holding any type of WHOI appointment at the post-Ph.D. level during the 12 months prior to April 1st of the Scholar award year are not eligible for the Scholar competition.
