Postdocs – help us design the National Postdoc Conference 2023

Campus in Autumn.

Loughborough University and C-DICE are proud to announce that we will have been selected by Vitae and the UKRSA to host the National PostDoc Conference 2023. It will take place on campus during Postdoc Appreciation Week on 19 September 2023 and ALL postdocs are welcome.

The Transitions and New Horizons conference for postdocs will be a platform to celebrate the impact and contribution of postdocs in changing the world for the better. It will be a chance to convene the postdoctoral community for building networks, sharing experiences, developing careers and equipping postdocs to thrive in their current role and beyond.

This is a conference for postdocs by postdocs so we need YOUR help. We are recruiting postdocs from all disciplines to join the conference steering group. We also want to make the conference a great experience for all and are encouraging anyone with caring responsibilities or protected characteristics to get involved. And just to be clear, we aren’t asking you to run a conference, C-DICE has an experienced team ready to do this, what we want from you is your input on what the conference should be like – what postdocs want from their national conference….
