College Affiliations

Many postdocs value a formal attachment to one of Cambridge's Colleges.

The Postdoc Academy has worked closely with the Colleges to develop affiliation opportunities for postdocs.

These opportunities provide additional networking benefits to postdocs who already have a research contract with the University. Please note these are different from Junior Research Fellowships (salaried employment contracts with a College), which we do not advertise here.

Below you’ll find a list of current unsalaried opportunities that Colleges have asked us to advertise. This is not necessarily an exhaustive list and you may find others on the University’s jobs site and the Reporter.
