1. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution:Postdoctoral Scholar Program

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 December 31st of the Scholar application year are not eligible for the Scholar competition.


Successful applicants of awards can initiate their study and research period at the Institution any time after January 1 and before December 1st of the year following the award notification. December 1st is a firm deadline. Recipients of the 2018-2019 awards will receive a stipend of $58,500 per year for an 18 month appointment, plus a relocation allowance. Limited support is also available for travel expenses, equipment, supplies and special services.


Extensions of scholar appointments may be possible if required to complete the initial research program. Extensions are rare, and restricted to one, six-month extension of the initial 18-month Scholar appointment, and the extension must be contiguous to the original appointment. Requests to extend a Scholar appointment will not be considered until after the first annual review. An extension request is initiated by a Scholar and his/her sponsor(s) and requires approval by the Chair of the Department hosting the Scholar and the Vice President for Academic Programs. In addition, a source of WHOI internal funds (unrestricted funds) to support the costs of the extension needs to be identified by the Scholar's advisor or others involved with the Scholar's research program. Extensions of a Scholar appointment beyond 24 months are not allowed, although a Scholar can be considered for appointment as a Postdoctoral Investigator following procedures defined by WHOI Human Resources.


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.



In addition to the formal application form, the following are required:

  • a current CV or resume that shows educational background and work experiences;

  • a brief synopsis of the applicant's doctoral dissertation (one page abstract);

  • a minimum of three non-WHOI recommendation letters (You must ask your reference writers to submit these letters on-line. We do not contact your references to request letters.  You should direct your reference writers to the reference link, found to the left on this page); and

  • a concise statement (no longer than three pages double-spaced) describing research interests, in particular those that the applicant would  like to pursue at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, as well as more general career plans and how a postdoctoral      tenure at  WHOI would complement your existing experience and preparation.


Applications can be completed using the online application submission link, in the related links box to the right.  All application materials must be submitted online.  Once you have completed the application form, you will be prompted to create a user account, which will allow you to submit the remaining documents and monitor the progress of your application.  Application processing is not automatic and references and other materials will not be approved and linked to the application until after the deadline.  You may not edit the application once you have submitted it.

The Institution-wide Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship Application should be used for anyone interested in applying for a general WHOI, WHOI Institute, NOSAMS or USGS postdoctoral scholar fellowship award. Applicants completing this form will be considered for all of these awards. Applicants with a particular interest in one of these specific categories should indicate their interest in the section of the application reserved for this.

6. University of Southampton: A sticky situation: probing the chemistry of aggregate formation in the ocean


The ocean is full of sticky compounds. These cause phytoplankton cells and other organic matter to stick together and form sinking aggregates (‘marine snow’). The impact that marine snow, which transports carbon from the surface to the deep ocean, has on global elemental cycles is huge: Once transported to depths >1000 m the carbon is removed from the atmosphere for >100 years. The stickiness of particles also affects human activities directly: for example, clogging up filters of desalination plants. What makes particles in the ocean sticky?


The stickiness of particles can be defined at the probability that particles remain attached upon collision. Extracellular polymeric substances (‘exopolymers’), released by microbes as a growth substrate and by phytoplankton during nutrient stress, appear 1-2 orders of magnitude more sticky than most other marine particles. Higher concentrations of exopolymers in seawater have been linked to increased marine snow formation. Moreover, exopolymers can self-aggregate, leading to the formation of particles even after water has been filtered.


However, the chemical processes involved in stickiness are poorly understood. We know little about what controls it and how it behaves when environmental conditions change. To date, we do not even know how to systematically quantify ‘stickiness’ in oceanography.



You will develop procedures to characterize and quantify stickiness, initially using model polysaccharides. You will then use phytoplankton cultures to produce organism-specific exopolymers from different species. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a research cruise to the Southern Ocean to collect your own samples, investigate marine snow and study particle formation at sea. Using roller tanks, you will generate your own particles, explore their growth rate and examine how stickiness properties relate to particle aggregation. Key aspects of the project will be to test and compare physicochemical techniques to determine the aggregation potential. You will learn to characterize the particles with optical and electron microscopy then to measure their size distribution. You will assess how the exopolymers affect the surface tension and attempt to determine the particles surface charge. To establish whether the hydrophobicity of the exopolymers correlates with their aggregation potential you will investigate techniques such as chromatography. To monitor aggregation in real time you will investigate a range of electroanalytical techniques.



National Oceanography Centre Southampton, University of Southampton



The SPITFIRE DTP programme provides comprehensive personal and professional development training alongside extensive opportunities for students to expand their multi-disciplinary outlook through interactions with a wide network of academic, research and industrial/policy partners. The student will be registered at the University of Southampton and hosted at the National Oceanography Centre; work will also be undertaken in the Electrochemistry Group. Specific training will include (1) physicochemical techniques to characterize the samples, (2) collection, production and characterization of marine snow from cultures and natural waters, (3) simple statistics.


In this project, you will acquire fundamental knowledge and research skills in oceanography and chemistry. You will join two groups with world-class reputation, and have opportunities to participate in research cruises, visit co-supervisor Passow in the US, and present your work internationally. Applications from candidates with no oceanographic experience are welcomed. Previous training can be augmented using University courses and the Electrochemistry Summer School.

SPITFIRE seeks excellent prospective research students regardless of their particular scientific background. We aim to recruit the best students rather than to fill particular projects. We put a huge amount of effort into the recruitment process to meet this objective. We expect to receive hundreds of applications and interview around 100 candidates a year. Those candidates invited for interview will typically spend a whole day at NOCS in Southampton, meeting with supervisors and going through the interview process. Additionally, students applying for projects based outside of NOCS at one of the other partner organisations or within the wider University of Southampton are encouraged to arrange with prospective supervisors to visit the potential hosting organisation.

Minimum Academic Eligibility Criteria

BSc/MSci 2:1

and/or Masters (MSc or MRes) at Merit/Distinction level (>60%).

and/or evidence of significant relevant professional experience equivalent to Masters level.


A list of available SPITFIRE projects for 2017/2018 entry can be found on the GSNOCS website. Projects can also be searched according to research theme and suitable first degree.

We encourage candidates to list two or three projects in which they are interested with a provisional ranking of preference to help us circulate your application among the pool of potential supervisors. Please submit only one application. Multiple projects can be listed on one application.


Each SPITFIRE project comes with a 3.5 year fully funded studentship for UK students and EU students who meet the RCUK eligibility criteria. Stipend in line with RCUK stipend levels.

To be eligible for a full award (stipend and fees), a student must satisfy all of these conditions:

  • Settled status in the UK, meaning they have      no restrictions on how long they can stay.

  • Been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for      three years prior to the start of the grant. This means they must have      been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences).

  • Not been residing in the UK wholly or      mainly for the purpose of full-time education. (This does not apply to UK      or EU nationals.)

Some projects are open to strong applicants who do not meet the above eligibility and/or are using alternative funding mechanisms via the GSNOCS PhD programme or other host faculties. These projects will contain a link to apply via GSNOCS or direct link to Faculty programme code.



All PhD applications to SPITFIRE should be made online using the ‘Apply to SPITFIRE’ link in the project description. Non SPITFIRE applicants should use the ‘Apply to GSNOCS’ link. Please make sure you select the correct link when applying.

7. World Maritime University: PhD programme

WMU’s PhD programme offers students the opportunity to carry out research across the maritime field, but with an emphasis on issues related to the International Maritime Organization’s mission of maritime safety, security and environmental protection. Our doctoral programme offers unrivalled access to international maritime experts both inside and outside academia, and to organizations working at the forefront of research and development.

Doctoral students have come to WMU from industry, academia and the government sector, and have completed their dissertations in a very wide range of subject areas, from investigating oil-spill mitigation to an analysis of organizational learning in shipping companies.

The credit system

The PhD program consists of 240 ECTS credits completed usually over a registration period of three to six years. Candidates may be based at the University or elsewhere, usually at their place of employment.

Within the time limits of three to six years, candidates may work at their own pace, which can also vary during their period of enrollment. For example, you may choose to spend one year working at WMU full time, and then return home to complete your work over a longer period, with short visits to the University for progression seminars, meetings, and so on

1 ECTS credit (EC) is approximately 25 study load hours. One academic year is generally 60 EC, or 1500 study load hours, or 36 hours per week over an academic year of 42 weeks.


Each of the four progression seminars, successfully completed, earns 40 EC. Successful defence of a finalized dissertation earns a candidate 60 EC.

In the initial 6 to 12 months of their registration, students complete a research methodology programme (20 EC), and prepare a detailed proposal for their research, including a literature review. At the end of this initial period, the first progression seminar is held, at which the candidates each present their research proposals.

Throughout the doctoral programme, further progression seminars are held where the candidates present their work to date and their research plans for the next twelve-month period. After every seminar, the Progression Board meets, and considers each candidate's report and a report from each principal supervisor. At this Board meeting, decisions are taken as to whether the candidate is to be permitted to progress to the next stage of the research.

The defence of each PhD dissertation is assessed by a specially established committee, which includes at least one senior and well recognised external expert in the relevant field, from an established organization.

A candidate’s enrolment can be terminated at any point if his/her progress is not considered to be satisfactory.

Advanced standing

A candidate who has completed part of a doctoral degree elsewhere may transfer into the WMU programme with advanced standing. Their period of enrolment at WMU will vary in line with the amount of research they have already completed, but the minimum permissible period of enrolment must include at least two progression seminars and the dissertation (140 EC). A candidate with advanced standing must therefore be registered for at least 12 months.


All doctoral students have a principal supervisor who is a member of the resident faculty. According to the topic of research, a student may also have a co-supervisor, who may be a Visiting Professor or a suitable person from outside the University.


Entrance Requirements

The Admissions Board will consider only those applicants who meet the minimum general entrance requirements, which are:

  • a Master’s degree, with a dissertation, in a relevant discipline, or an equivalent university qualification

  • competence in English language, demonstrated by an internationally recognised standard test

  • computer competence

The Admissions Board will select only the best-qualified candidates, taking into account all their qualifications and achievements. In exceptional circumstances, an applicant who holds only a Bachelor’s degree may be considered for admission. In these cases, the Admissions Board will give careful consideration to the candidate’s ability, publications, research record and other evidence. The applicant may also be required to take an entrance examination

Test of English

Applicants must offer one of the following tests of English language:

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)
96+ in the internet-based test 590+ in the paper-based test
WMU’s TOEFL institution code is 9198.

International English Language Testing System (IELTS)
band 7.0 or above

Cambridge Examinations
Cambridge Proficiency Examination at grade A or B

GCE O-level or the equivalent
a good pass grade

We seek a talented Marine Meteorologist/Climate scientist to join an international team developing the in situ component of the of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) Climate Data Store (https://climate.copernicus.eu/climate-data-store). This team, led by the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) in collaboration with partners in the UK and USA, are responsible for providing access to terrestrial and marine observations from national and international climate archives in a common data model and with harmonised metadata.

As part of this role you will collate marine meteorological observations from weather stations and vessels and metadata into a common data model. As part of this you will develop and apply new mathematical/statistical techniques for quality control and analysis of the observations using your expert knowledge of the physical environment. This will include screening of observations of essential climate variables for anomalous values, diagnosing and fixing the cause where possible; developing and implementing algorithms for spatially tracking ships of opportunity; and imputing missing quality and metadata flags based on the data. More information on the type of data can be found on the ICOADS website (http://icoads.noaa.gov). You will also be responsible for implementing those methods and documenting them in code, internal reports and the peer reviewed scientific literature as appropriate. You will also present those methods and results in project meetings and at scientific conferences.

We seek applicants with a good understanding of physics, with experience of analysing large environmental data sets and with strong mathematics and statistics. You will have a PhD, or equivalent experience, in a numerate or technical subject with exposure to large datasets.
