Postdoc Academy


The Postdoc Centres provide postdocs with a resource of their own - a space to come together and exchange ideas, a place to access support, and a way to find a sense of belonging and engage with the University beyond their department.

The Postdoc Centres offer free meeting rooms, event venues and quiet working spaces to Postdocs at the Biomedical Campus, Mill Lane, and Eddington (North West Cambridge).

They also provide a venue for other services around the University to hold training, talks, and events specifically for postdocs. The Postdoc Centre @ Biomedical Campus also welcomes 3rd and 4th year PhD students.

The first Postdoc Centre at 16 Mill Lane opened in 2014 and since then the centres have seen over 3,000 events, meetings, workshops, talks and networking sessions.

The centres also serve as office space for the Postdoc Academy, PdOC and NVS – where Postdoc Academy staff and volunteers provide support to postdocs throughout their time at the University. Drop in to visit if you have any questions about your life and work in Cambridge.
