About us

Being an MRC PostDoc

Why the MRC?

The MRC was founded over 100 years ago, its origins lying in the research into tuberculosis and whether it was the same strain in animals and humans therefore being transferrable between the two.


Now one of the most prestigious Research Organisations in the World, the MRC boasts 21 nobel prizes.

The MRC is dedicated to the development of its scientists and always striving to achieve the best results.  To this aim, the PostDoc training scheme has been designed to both develop and nurture in order to achieve the best results for both science and career development possible.

If you have any questions or ideas for the next PostDoc Symposium, email or tweet us.
