Postdoc careers appointments

Postdocs and research staff (including research assistants and JRFs) can book an appointment with one of the postdoc Careers Advisers. A careers appointment can be useful for:
  • discussing how to make the most of your time in Cambridge, if you have recently started your contract
  • considering your options (inside and outside academia)
  • feedback on job and fellowship applications
  • interview preparation (with the option of a mock interview if you would like one)
