Welcome to the School of Biological Sciences PostDoc Forum. The PDF, established in 2010, is one of a number of school-based societies organised and run by postdocs, therefore member involvement is essential. Our aims are many: to provide a voice for the postdoctoral community within the School, to promote opportunities for career advancement, personal development and social interaction and to provide a portal of useful information for a wide range of postdoctoral needs, reflecting the many and varied challenges of the job.
All contract research staff are members of the PDF and are encouraged to come along to the meetings. These provide a forum for discussing any aspect of being a postdoctoral research scientist, either on a local, or national level. Any and all opinions are encouraged and ideas for forum activities extremely welcome.
