Entrepreneurial Postdocs of Cambridge


Past Projects:



A company is looking for a postdoc to assemble a white paper summarising greenhouse gas emission changes associated with specific agricultural practices and industries. This does not require new research, but should summarise all pertinent literature. 

The result should be a ~3000-word document, fully researched and referenced using current academic literature, and should look like an academic literature review.
Specific industry details will be provided to the successful candidate.
The ideal candidate would be an expert in climate science or a related field, be comfortable in assembling data and of the relevant literature, and have a proven track-record of writing academic papers and understanding cutting edge research. 
The company is looking to start, and complete, the project ASAP.



Applications are invited for developing an efficient and effective assessment tool which can measure cognitive diversity and cultural alignment across teams. This will be a short-term consultancy project with the potential for a long-term consultancy relationship.

Often there is a perceived conflict between hiring more diversely and preserving "culture fit", which an assessment tool measuring both factors could help alleviate. At the same time, existing psychometric tools are fairly time intensive and limited in scope when applied to diversity and inclusion. 

The aim for the assessment tool would be a test that takes no more than 10-15 minutes for individuals to complete. It would give insightful data on how cognitively diverse and culturally aligned an existing team is. This same test could then be given to any potential new joiners to understand how they contribute to the cognitive diversity and cultural alignment of the team. 



Postdocs with sufficient knowledge of existing assessment tools in this field. The project is aimed at either evolving or adapting the existing tools to help promote diversity and inclusion within the private sector. It is essential that the data from the assessment tool can be proven to be statistically relevant.
