Postdoc Inductions

The OPdA runs inductions for all new postdocs - whether your contract is with the University, a Partner Institute, or a College.

At these Getting Connected in Cambridge 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 contract and employment-related matters

▪       Postdoc clubs, societies and sport

▪       Living and family life in Cambridge


Inductions are held each term in the Postdoc Centre @ Eddington (105 Eddington Place, CB3 1AS) from 10 am - 12.30 pm. In 2019/20, inductions will be held on:

  • 25 September 2019 
  • 07 November 2019 
  • 11 December 2019
  • 19 March 2020
  • 15 July 2020

We send out invitations to all new postdocs, or you can book a place through .
