The College has a new process in which to formally recognise the valuable contribution that postdoctoral research staff make towards the student-supervisor partnership.
Postdocs are research staff who have a PhD or equivalent and are employed to undertake research commonly on an externally funded contract. Find out more about the Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre (PFDC).
Subject to completion of mandatory training requirements (including the face-to-face or online course 'Introduction to being an Assistant Supervisor' and outlined in documents below), postdocs can be formally recognised as Assistant Supervisors.
