Postdoc careers appointments

We offer one-to-one appointments with a Careers Adviser for science postdocs. These sessions are free and entirely confidential. There is no limit to the number of appointments you can have, subject to reasonable usage.

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 (whether for an academic, industrial or non-research career)
  • feedback on CV, cover letter and other application materials
  • interview preparation (with the option of a mock interview if you would like one)
