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 will be given information about the wide range of opportunities and services available within Cambridge - and specifically how they can help you as a postdoc.

 

These services cover:

▪       Postdoc clubs, societies and sport

▪       Life and family life in Cambridge

▪       Support related to your research

▪       Career development and support beyond your research

▪       Training and development

▪       HR and other work-related matters

▪       OPdA initiatives

 

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

Inductions are held each term in the Postdoc Centre @ Eddington (105 Eddington Place, CB3 1AS) and all new postdocs are required to attend an induction as part of their HR process when they start.

To find out more or register to attend the next induction event, please contact courses.opda@admin.cam.ac.uk
