Post Doctoral Programme
The Institute has long recognised that the excellence of our postdoctoral researchers is critical for our overall success. We ensure that our research environment and opportunities for training and career development serve to attract, develop and retain the very best postdoctoral scientists and Research Fellows.
There are approximately 40 postdoctoral research scientists and senior postdoctoral research scientists at the Babraham Institute. Many of these posts are funded by external grants, with the post-holders on limited term contracts. The Institute also hosts junior research fellows funded by external agencies including Marie Curie, EMBO and HFSP who recognise the excellent training environment and location afforded by the Institute.
The Institute has a postdoc committee comprising postdocs, group leaders and personnel staff. This committee acts as a forum for discussion of postdocs issues. It is also responsible for review and allocation of Institute-funded travel and training awards as has input in defining the Institute’s training, mentoring and career development provision for postdocs.
