EngBio Postdocs



EngBio Postdocs is a initiative to help connect postdocs across the university. We will be hosting regular events where you can meet and network with other postdocs from across university departments, as well as supporting postdocs to pursue their own projects and initiatives.

Postdocs are welcome from across the University and University-affiliated institutes (MRC-LMB, Babraham Institute etc.). Whilst the main aim of the group is to support postdocs, interested PhD students and other research staff are more than welcome to join our meetings.
