The WHOI Postdoctoral Association (PDA) was established to formally represent the WHOI postdoc community and to assist postdocs with issues concerning work and life around Woods Hole. The committee includes postdocs from every department, so we hope you will always feel comfortable coming to the PDA for advice or help connecting to the rest of the WHOI community, or to bring an issue to our attention.

New to WHOI? Welcome!

If you just started your postdoctoral appointment at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, here's some advice that we hope will make the process of settling in 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. The PDA can also help you get started with our postdoc peer mentoring program.
  • Check out our events calendar to see what the PDA is planning, and to find information on many of the WHOI department seminars.
  • Last but not least, consider subscribing to the informal postdoc e-mail list and joining the postdoc slack to connect with the postdoc community!
