Postdoctoral Employment

Scripps Institutional Postdoctoral Program

The Scripps Postdoctoral program is an annual competitive program that offers funding from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography that covers a broad range of research.  One or more positions are given each year to new or recent doctorates in the general research areas of Oceans & Atmosphere, Marine Biology, or Earth Science.

Cecil H. and Ida M. Green Foundation

There are two types of postdoctoral fellowships in Earth Sciences. They are awards to work with mentors in the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP) at Scripps:

  • Green Postdoctoral Fellowships include all areas of geophysics and are typically solicited on a yearly basis.
  • The Miles Postdoctoral Fellowship supports research in computational and theoretical geophysics and is generally offered every 2-3 years.

Positions with individual researchers or faculty

Sometimes the positions are advertised, but often not.

We recommend that you search Scripps directory of academic personnel and then contact the individuals you're interested in working with to see if they have positions available.

The length of postdoctoral appointments varies by individual investigator.
