The Postdoc Community

There are just over 4,000 postdocs working in Cambridge, of which 3,000 are employed directly by the University and 1,000 are employed as Junior Research Fellows by the Colleges, the University Partner Institutes, or funded by external fellowships.

They make up more than 35% of total University staff and they are the fastest growing staff group – more than 160% since 2000.

They are also the most diverse staff group by nationality, coming to Cambridge from over 90 countries around the world (including 28-40% EU/EAA nationals).

This is an exciting community to be part of and there are a number of groups who can help you and your family to settle in, build a social network and get involved with the life of the University.
