Undergraduate students can become involved in research at WHOI through the Summer Student Fellowship program. This 12-week program places rising senior undergraduates in research labs at WHOI, where they design and implement their own hands-on project under the supervision of a WHOI scientist. The program provides a first-hand, real-work view into life as a researcher and aids undergraduate students in discerning whether they desire a career in research.

Undergraduate students belonging to Underrepresented Minority groups can become involved in WHOI research via the Woods Hole Partnership Education Program. The goal of this 10-week program is to provide junior and senior undergraduate minority students with hands-on experience in marine and environmental science and increase representation of minorities in scientific and research-based careers. Students participate in a 4-week academic course, an oceanographic expedition at sea, and a 6-week internship at one of the research institutions in Woods Hole. I strongly support minority participation in the sciences and encourage PEP students to join my lab.

Graduate students can join my lab via the WHOI-MIT Joint Program. This 5-year program is designed to give PhD students the best possible training in oceanography, by combining advising expertise from both WHOI and MIT faculty. Students take courses both at WHOI and MIT and complete their dissertations in the lab of a WHOI or MIT researcher, with committee members from both institutions. Interested graduate students should contact me directly to discuss funding prospects and possible research projects.

Postdoctoral researchers are eligible for the WHOI Postdoctoral Scholar program, which provides 18 months of funding for independent research under the supervision of one or more WHOI scientists. Interested postdoctoral applicants should contact me directly to discuss research projects.
