Postdoc Academy


The Postdoc Academy runs welcome events for all new postdocs - whether your contract is with the University, a Partner Institute or a College.

At these Postdoc Welcome Events, you are given information about the wide range of opportunities and services available within Cambridge - and specifically how they can help you as a postdoc.

There is also an opportunity to talk directly to representatives from these services and to other new postdocs. 

The services cover:

  • Support related to your research
  • Career development and support beyond your research
  • HR and other employment-related matters
  • Postdoc clubs, societies and sport
  • Living in Cambridge and family life.


Services Guide

Our Services Guide contains contact information and brief descriptions from a range of University services, networks and organisations that may be of interest to you.

You can also hear directly from those services about how they can support you and your work in these short videos.
