Societies in the College specifically for post-docs.
The College has several post-doc societies. These are created and run by post-docs for post-docs, but also welcome other interested researchers.
Joining your local society is a great way to get to know your community through social interactions, information sharing and regular wide-ranging career and training events.
These societies often host cross-campus events, so joining a society will allow you to meet and interact with post-docs across the wider College community.
There are currently four active post-doc societies in the College:
BioQuarter PostDoc Society (BQPS)
BQPDS represents post-docs in the Edinburgh Bioquarter (Little France campus).
George Square PostDoc Society (G2PD)
G2PD represents College post-docs in George Square (Hugh Robson Building and 1 George Square).
IGC Postdoctoral Society (PODs)
For post-docs based at any of the buildings in the Institute of Genetics and Cancer or at the Western General Hospital.
Easter Bush Postdoctoral Committee
For those at the Vet School and Roslin Institute on the Easter Bush campus.
The Easter Bush Postdoctoral Committee also host a weekly virtual coffee break from 3-4pm (alternative weeks Tuesday/Thursday). To join the session, register on Kumospace:
