A flagship professional and social hub for post-doctoral researchers.


Postdoc Centre

The Postdoc Centre at Eddington is the first of its kind in the country assisting post-docs in the City.

It acts as a major professional and social interactive hub and is run by the Postdoc Academy.

There are just over 4,000 postdocs at the University of Cambridge. A postdoc is a researcher who has completed their doctoral studies, and is continuing specialist research in a professional capacity in a fixed term or unestablished role.

Most are employed directly by the University, funded by research grants, or fellowships, while others are sponsored externally or by the collegiate system. At Cambridge, they conduct research into a variety of topics, including medicine, engineering, physics, the arts and social sciences.
