Cambridge's researchers are integral to the life and success of the University. As well as contributing to the world-class research for which Cambridge is famous, researchers also make valued contributions to teaching and learning, public engagement, administration, and much more.

Cambridge has much to offer, in return. The sheer variety of opportunities, the structure of the University and Colleges, the pace of working life and the increasing numbers of researchers coming to Cambridge from across the world, as well as from the four regions of the United Kingdom, can make Cambridge a difficult place to navigate. These pages draw together some general information about living and working in Cambridge that is of particular relevance to researchers. You can also find career management information and support for researchers, including the University's Employment and Career Management Scheme for Researchers.

The European Commission has recognized the University's commitment to fostering good working conditions and career development for researchers, by granting the University its 'HR excellence in research' award. The University will continue to assess its progress in supporting researcher careers. You can read more about this work from following the links from this page.
