Postdoc Academy


Research culture describes the environment in which research happens, and includes the norms in behaviours, expectations, attitudes and values of our research communities.

As a signatory of the Researcher Development Concordat, the University has made a commitment to creating a healthy and supportive research culture at Cambridge.

The Action Research on Research Culture project is now investigating how changing the recruitment, development and retention of researchers could improve research culture.
