Try:
<Where>
  <Or>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>a</Value></Eq>          
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>b</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>c</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>d</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>f</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>g</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>h</Value></Eq>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>i</Value></Eq>
  </Or>
</Where>

Actually that probably won't work, you'll need to use nested OR's:

<Where>
  <Or>
     <Or>
        <Or>
           <Or>
              <Or>
                 <Or>
                    <Or>
                      <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>a</Value></Eq>          
                      <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>b</Value></Eq>
                    </Or>
                    <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>c</Value></Eq>
                 </Or>
                 <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>d</Value></Eq>
              </Or>
              <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>f</Value></Eq>
           </Or>
           <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>g</Value></Eq>
        </Or>
        <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>h</Value></Eq>
     </Or>
     <Eq><FieldRef Name='Position'/><Value Type='Text'>i</Value></Eq>
  </Or>
</Where>
