Postdoc Academy



Employees of the University have access to a substantial list of benefits.

These include childcare and family leave, a cycle to work scheme and transport discounts, and shopping discounts.

Make sure you register for the SmartHub, the employee benefits portal, to see your benefits and access discounts.




The Postdoc Academy and Cambridge University Development and Alumni Relations are delighted to be able to extend a number of University alumni benefits to postdocs. In order to be eligible for alumni benefits, you will need to have been in post for a minimum of 300 consecutive days.

We encourage you to update your details on Employee Self Service before your term of employment ends to ensure you start to receive these benefits as soon as possible.

Once you are about to leave the University, you will be contacted directly by Development Alumni Relations. You will have the opportunity to opt-out of the scheme.

To view a full list of benefits which are available to you, please visit the Cambridge Alumni website.

If you have any queries regarding registration to the alumni scheme or benefits, please contact
