For Postdocs at CEB

Welcome to the postdoc webpage of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB).

The CEB Postdoc Committee exists to represent postdocs in the department and feedback concerns and suggestions to the Head of Department.

Issues considered part of the remit of the CEB Postdoc Committee include:

  • Employment (contract, probation, mentoring, redundancy, maternity/paternity rights etc)
  • Dignity at work and equality
  • Welfare (induction, safety training, access to support services)
  • Training (on-the-job training, availability and suitability of training courses)
  • Career development (review, career advice and mentoring)
  • Staff review and development
  • Representation and communication within the department.

How can CEB PdoC help you?

  • To connect with and learn from other postdocs some of the things you need to know -
  • Get to attend activities and meetings of CEB Postdoc and to know colleagues outside of your lab. See calendar.
