Postdoc Welcome Events

The OPdA 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 contract and employment-related matters

▪       Postdoc clubs, societies and sport

▪       Living and family life in Cambridge


Welcome events are held each term in the Postdoc Centre @ Eddington (105 Eddington Place, CB3 1AS) from 9:30am - 12:00pm. Upcoming inductions will be held on:

  • 19 March 2020
  • 15 July 2020

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