Summer Research Intern (Former Employee) – Strathclyde – 14 June 2018
I was worried inititially about working in an office environment but everyone was so nice and I was made to feel part of the team straight away. Left to work at my own pace with help if required. great place!
Had a cracking time working at the University of Strathclyde. I was employed on a student scholarship, and learned so many things. I also had the opportunity to teach undergraduates and master's students respectively, which was a great joy.
Days were spent creating experiments for school students. A relaxed laboratory with plenty of freedom to get on with the task at hand. After obtaining results, these could be processed in a friendly office with a lot of other like-minded people.
I enhanced my chemistry knowledge by working alongside doctors and professors in their respective fields. A perfect foil to develop my understanding of the science.
The hardest part of the job was the long waits to obtain results for some experiments but this allowed for a lot of paperwork and reports to be undertaken.
The most enjoyable part was being immersed in a culture with other researchers focused on similar goals.
like-minded people, fun work environment, varied tasks
Intern (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 6 July 2017
I was attending a course that would enable me to become more employable or otherwise gain employment; I would say that working for this university would be a privilege as it is fair, easy to settle into and worth investing in.
University of Strathclyde (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 12 May 2017
Great place to work, the staff are all very positive and friendly and the job is good fun. For any student I highly recommend trying to get this job and running campus tours etc it's ideal to work around classes.
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 9 May 2017
I have now spent many years at Strathclyde University and as a whole it is a great organisation to work for. No day is the same, which was one of the reasons for doing research. Would recommend people to work at this organisation.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) (Current Employee) – Glasgow, UK – 10 April 2017
The main work of GTA is to mark the assessments of undergraduate psychology students. Other things that we can sign up is for invigilation or helping the professors during the tutorials. I have learned how to mark various assignments such as essay writing or report writing and the marking criteria followed at the university. The time is managed well as we get the schedule of marking way ahead of time before we are assigned the work. We are given two weeks to mark the assignments, which are then cross checked by the class leader. The hardest part of the job sometimes is deciding on what mark to give. We have to be critical about the mark and the comments that we give to the students intending to help them in their future assignments.
