The WHOI Postdoctoral Association (PDA) was established to formally represent the WHOI postdoc community and to assist you in issues concerning work and life around Woods Hole. The committee includes postdocs from every department, so we hope you feel that we always are close by for giving advice, connecting you to the rest of the WHOI organization, or bringing an issue to our attention.

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 subscribing 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.
