Research Staff Forum

Research Staff Forum

The Research Staff Forum (formerly known as the Post Doc Forum) is a group that aims to establish a close networking platform between all researchers in the Department. Each research group is represented by a researcher 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 and Researcher Development Coordinator.

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