Oceanography + Polar Science @ APL-UW

Postdoc (SEED) Science & Engineering Enrichment & Development

The Laboratory provides two fellowships per year; each is funded for 2 years. Applicants for the felowships will have research interests aligned with APL-UW areas of expertise: polar science, ocean physics, air-sea interaction and remote sensing, or ocean engineering.

Fellows will define their own research programs in conjunction with an APL-UW principal investigator mentor. Successful postdoc fellows will be motivated and prepared to pursue independent research funding at the end of the 2-year fellowship period.

Formal announcements are advertised in April each year. Finalists will travel to APL-UW for interviews before August. Start dates from 1 October to 31 March are anticipated, depending on candidate graduation dates or other job-related timelines.

Candidates will submit a CV and a proposal that outlines their planned research while at APL-UW as well as their long-term career goals.

The application window typically opens in April each year.
