Professional and career development are integral to enabling postdocs to develop to their full potential.
Queen Mary aims to attract the best research talent from all over the world and to support and develop them to become leaders in disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and innovation. We support the aspiration to excellence which includes the improvement of research and professional skills and knowledge.
