The Ocean Bottom Seismic Instrument Center (OBSIC) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) announces a competition for a Postdoctoral Scholar Fellowship. OBSIC’s mission is to support discovery of the earth’s internal structure and its dynamic processes using seafloor seismic measurements. (See The OBSIC Postdoctoral Fellowship, recognizing the importance of marine seismology and ocean-bottom seismic instrumentation to continued discovery in Earth Sciences, aims to help maintain the strength of the field by supporting instrumentation-focused research and development.

You are invited to apply for this Postdoctoral Fellowship for any project related to: 1) advancing our knowledge of earth structure with an emphasis on using ocean-bottom seismograph data, including the development and/or application of new analytical methodologies; 2) research and engineering in the area of seafloor seismic instrumentation, including the development and/or application of new sensors; 3) understanding earthquake-related processes using seafloor seismology and/or geodesy; 4) advancing our knowledge of the interplay between seafloor seismic measurements and oceanographic processes; and 5) other projects within this broad scope. The successful candidate may choose to carry out research with faculty in any of WHOI’s science and engineering departments, with staff at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center, or a combination thereof.

Completed applications will be accepted up to October 15, 2021 for consideration for Postdoctoral Scholar Awards for 2022-2023. Recipients of awards can initiate their study and research period at the Institution any time after January 1, 2022 and before December 1, 2022.

Specific questions about this postdoctoral fellowship position can be addressed to the OBSIC Director, John Collins at jcollins<at> <jcollins<at>>
