About us

The University of Cambridge Postdoc Careers Service is here to help

Our specialist postdoc careers advice helped almost 2000 postdocs improve their career prospects last year! Watch our quick video to find out how we do that.  Our blog is a way to reach out to Cambridge researchers, start a conversation with you and to continue it.

With over a decade of experience of supporting postdocs, we know what it’s like to be in your position: both the good and the bad. We’re on your side! Through individual appointments, events, workshops and ‘how to’ guides, we’re there with you all the way.

Common questions we can help with:

  • What careers will make the most of my postdoc experience and skills?
  • How do I make my applications stand out in the academic job market?
  • How do I rewrite my CV and cover letter to get a job outside academia?
  • How can I prepare for an upcoming interview?
  • How do I write a convincing fellowship proposal?
  • What do I do if I feel too old to make a career change?


We’re available to postdocs and contract researchers at the University of Cambridge and its partner institutes

We can save you time and help you to make the most of your contract in Cambridge
