The Postdoc Academy provides welcome events specific to postdocs joining the University of Cambridge.

These sessions include presentations from the Postdoc Academy, PdOC, Careers Service and HR, followed by a Q&A and then themed networking.

You will be given information on how to navigate life as a researcher in Cambridge and then have the opportunity to network with other new postdocs and University services.

During the session, you will learn about:

  • interacting with the Postdoc Academy
  • attending professional development activities and accessing the Careers Service
  • connecting to the wider postdoc community at Cambridge
  • accessing resources available to postdocs as a staff member.

You should attend the next available welcome event after your start date, or a later event if this is not possible.


Upcoming events

The next available Postdoc Welcome event will take place on Tuesday 18 June, 13:30 - 15:00, at the Eddington Postdoc Centre.
