Broadening Participation and International


The Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) offers postdoctoral research fellowships to provide opportunities for scientists early in their careers to work within and across traditional disciplinary lines, develop partnerships, and avail themselves of unique resources, sites and facilities.  The fellowship program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with experience that will establish them in positions of leadership in the scientific community.  During tenure, fellows will affiliate with an appropriate research institution(s) and conduct research on topics supported by OCE.  The OCE fellowship program has two tracks: 1) Track 1 (Broadening Participation) and 2) Track 2 (International).  Fellowships are awards to individuals, not organizations, and are administered by the fellows.
