Investing in research teams


Our vision for postdoctoral researchers

BBSRC is committed to supporting a world-class community of postdoctoral researchers.

Our vision for postdoctoral researchers sets out how we expect grant holders and their host institutions to support the postdoctoral research staff employed on BBSRC grants, and what activities we expect the postdocs to engage with during their time employed on these grants. It serves as a term of reference for us and our grant holders in shaping activities to support the postdoctoral community.

You can read more in our Vision for postdoctoral researchers.

We are signatories to the Concordat, a national agreement between the funders and employers of researchers, supporting the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff in the UK.


In delivering the vision we recognise our role in building a postdoctoral community. To keep up-to-date with the latest developments for the BBSRC postdoc community, join our LinkedIn group BBSRC Postdocs.
