Department of Computer Science and Technology

Post Doc Forum

The Post Doc Forum is a group that aims to establish a close networking platform between postdocs in the Computer Laboratory. Each research group is represented by a Post Doc and the Chair is an Observer on the Faculty Board. The Departmental Secretary is a member of the Forum along with the Deputy Head of the Department for Teaching, Researcher Development Coordinator and the Research and Enterprise Facilitator.

The hope of the forum is to create a platform for collaboration and mutual assistance between postdocs. Members of the forum can offer a mentoring service to all new Research Staff working in the Lab. To request a mentor, please contact the PA to Head of Department, (clpahod@cam). New mentors also required and so if you are an experienced post doc and would like to become a mentor, please also get in touch.
