The Postdoc Academy manages two postdoctoral fellowship programmes as part of the University’s on-going endeavour to support and develop its large and expanding postdoctoral community.

Please note that only those employed by the University, Colleges and Partner Institutes are eligible for these programmes.

 

Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowship  

The Borysiewicz Biomedical Sciences Fellowships have been developed in honour of Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, a pioneer in the biomedical sciences, who when Vice-Chancellor of the University led and shaped the development of key provisions for Cambridge’s postdoc community.

The Borysiewicz Fellowships takes outstanding Cambridge postdocs and develops them into motivated, strategic future leaders ready to pursue a range of global questions and problems. The programme provides a unique mixture of purposeful and outcome-driven engagement opportunities for postdocs both within and outside their area of expertise, which develops their skills as leaders to pursue independent work on novel ideas.

This programme is closed for new applications but the next call will be launching in Spring/Summer 2021 for a January 2022 start.
