Careers support for science postdocs

We offer a wide range of specific information and support for postdocs. You can also access all the Careers Service student resources.

Online resources

Information, materials and links on all aspects of careers for postdocs, whether you want to find out about a particular career path, or do not yet know what you want to do.

Careers Advisers

There are four Careers Advisers for science postdocs. They offer regular appointments for career guidance discussions, application feedback and mock interviews, at the Careers Service and on-site in departments and institutes.

Events and workshops

We run regular workshops on topics such as CVs, interviews and exploring different careers. We also run larger events about particular career paths or issues, inviting former postdocs as speakers. See what is coming up.

We record some events, so you can listen to past topics by accessing our extensive postdoc career podcasts.

Wider resources

Many of the Careers Service student resources are also useful for postdocs:

  • You can search for current vacancies on Handshake. Save yourself some relevant searches to receive job alerts on a daily or weekly basis. You can also explore our three year archive - useful if you're researching employers for speculative applications or trying to anticipate future opportunities.
  • GradLink - read about, and contact, people working in a sector you're interested in
  • Information about graduate careers
  • Events - our student careers events which many employers attend
