Here you can find some information and tips on the phase after completing a doctorate. For example: how can I fund my postdoc position?

Information on postdoctoral teaching qualifications

The conditions for admission to postdoctoral teaching qualifications are generally the completion of a doctorate or an academic qualification recognised as being equivalent to this, further academic activity after completion of the doctorate generally of a minimum of two years and evidence of practice teaching experience.
