Reimbursing your visa and other costs
Successful applicants will be able to claim the cost of their visa and of the immigration health surcharge (IHS) for themselves and for their dependants once they have joined. Applicants often find the UK visa application process to be less onerous than for some other countries, such as the United States.
Training and support
We run training sessions for new postdocs, as well as a postdoc buddy system to help you settle into your role. We normally pair you with someone from a different discipline, to broaden your network. We can also try to match you with someone who speaks your native language.
Throughout your postdoc fellowship, you’ll be offered training and support to help you grow in key areas such as high impact publishing, managing research projects, leadership and career planning.
Join our networks
Our Postdoc Association brings together postdocs across the ICR for professional and social events, which include away days and conferences. It provides a community for postdocs to feel connected and supported.
Our active postdoc LinkedIn group is a great way to connect with others and get answers to common questions, from what it’s like to rent in London to setting up a UK bank account.
