A solid academic research institution
Postdoctoral Fellow (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 22 May 2018
For a researcher, the connection to the wider research community can be lacking somewhat. There is a tendency for people to operate in their own silos and to share ideas less than in other institutions. As with academia as a whole, where there is so much competition, the job security/progression can be a dead end.
However, the expertise there is very high, the campus community is welcoming, and the pay was good. Birmingham is a very livable and lively city!
Beautiful campus, great fitness facilities
Ageing equipment, too much bureaucracy
