What is PdOC?

Queen's Dinner (590x288)

Postdocs Of Cambridge (PdOC) is the Cambridge University Society for postdoctoral research staff and Junior Research Fellows (JRFs). PdOC represents postdocs in career development, contract research conditions, college affiliation, and social and sporting issues. All Cambridge postdocs are welcome to join, and there is no membership fee.

The aims of the PdOC society are to:

  • Represent Postdocs from all Faculties, Schools and Departments at the University of Cambridge and University Partner Institutions (UPIs).
  • Facilitate communication and networking between Postdocs both within the Departments and across Faculties and the wider University community.
  • Provide information and support so that Postdocs can make the most of their time at Cambridge.
  • Create a social and intellectual network for Postdocs throughout the University.

The PdOC Society Constitution states the aims and membership of the PdOC society, explains how PdOC Society functions and elects Officers of the Society. Further information on the activities of the PdOC society can be found in the 2015-2016 PdOC Society Annual Report.

If you would like to help out with specific jobs e.g. organising an event, writing a postdoc guide etc. you do not have to join the committee. Each elected Officer manages a subcommittee and can 'co-opt' new members to this group for specific tasks. If you would like to help with a specifc task please contact the relevant committee member. They would be very happy to have your help!
