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.

Under normal circumstances, welcome events are held each term in the Postdoc Centre @ Eddington (105 Eddington Place, CB3 1AS), but they have been held virtually for the duration of lockdown.


Dates for upcoming Postdoc Welcome Events in 2021 are:

Tuesday 20 April 2021, 10:00-11:30

Wednesday 7 July 2021, 10:00-11:30

Thursday 16 September 2021, 10:00-11:30
