Postdocs of Cambridge Society


St. John's College

The Postdoc Society of Cambridge (PdOC) is a connection of postdoctoral researchers for the support of postdocs, run by postdocs, for postdocs, through events and University representation.  Members of PdOC often sit on committees within the University to give a postdoctoral voice to policy. If you, as a postdoc, are interested in being on a committee, then please contact us at .

The PdOC Society is proudly supported by the Postdoc Academy (PdA) and The University Accommodation Service.  There are various ways to keep up to date with PdOC.

All postdocs and JRFs at the University of Cambridge, Cambridge Colleges and University Partner Institutes are invited to join the PdOC Society.  There is no membership fee.
