Postdoc Academy


Postdocs, or early career researchers, are crucial for the University’s world-class research and a vital part of the University community.

There are just over 4,200 working in Cambridge, of which 3,200 are employed directly by the University and 1,000 are employed by the Colleges, the University Partner Institutes, or funded by external fellowships. 

In 2013, the University established the Postdoc Academy as the lead organisation with a focus on the postdoctoral community.

There is a lot of support for postdocs embedded around the University so we have created this website to help you easily navigate all of the resources that are available to you.
