Mote Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are three-year positions providing 100% salary support, research start-up, supplies, equipment and mentorship to postdoctoral scientists conducting outstanding work early in their careers.

Mote Postdoctoral Research Fellows are selected based on their ability to strengthen and diversify Mote Marine Laboratory’s significant existing research expertise and their potential to establish their own innovative research initiatives as independent investigators. Exemplary Fellows may be invited to join Mote as Staff Scientists upon completion of their initial appointment.

Mote Marine Laboratory—an independent, nonprofit, marine science institution founded in 1955—is dedicated to nurturing the best and the brightest minds in marine science and technology fields, a key priority in our Beyond 2020 Vision & Strategic Plan. These Fellowships are made possible by philanthropic support.
