Postdoc Academy


This year's virtual conference, hosted by the University of Liverpool on 24 September, will cover the theme of: new realities, stronger connections, successful futures.

It will reflect the complexities of the current higher education research environment, where there is increasing recognition of postdocs’ expectations regarding career development and healthy working environments.

The day-long conference aims to give postdocs from all disciplines the opportunity to:

  • meet and network
  • hear about key initiatives across the national research agenda
  • harness your career prospects by participating in bite-sized development activities.

The exciting programme includes a keynote from Professor Dame Ottoline Leyser, CEO of UKRI, plus a panel on collaborative research practices, which will include Professor Julia Buckingham CBE, President of Universities UK.

All sessions are free to attend but registration is required.
