Postdoc Academy


The Postdoc Academy runs welcome events for all new postdocs - whether your contract is with the University, a Partner Institute or a College.

At these Postdoc Welcome Events, you are given information about the wide range of opportunities and services available within the University of Cambridge - and specifically how they can help you as a postdoc.

There is also an opportunity to ask questions directly to representatives from these services and to meet other new postdocs. 

The services cover:

  • Career development
  • Researcher development
  • Human Resources and other employment-related matters
  • Postdoc societies
  • Living in Cambridge and family life



Take a look at our Quick-Start Guide for a few simple ways to get started as a postdoc and make the most of Postdoc Academy services.

Our Postdoc Map of University Services will help you find your way to the resources, networks and organisations around the University that offer support to you as a postdoc.

You can also hear directly from those services about how they can support you and your work in these short videos.
