Fun yet tiring

Indeed Featured review

Having starting the role as a research fellow, work has been amazing but tiring. Expected to work out of ordinary hours to finish task at hand. Good if you’re passionate on the topic


Cheap lunch


Long hours, challenging topic

Good university with ample opportunities for growth

Not-too-rigid work hours, nice campus, people from all over the world, and excellent infrastructure. There is pressure to deliver but manageable. Many opportunities to learn from peers and superiors.

Young university with various top notch research labs. Collaborative research efforts are encouraged. No plan in place for career development of post docs.

Great place to work

School of biological sciences is a great place to work. I had good time doing research and learned a lot. Work culture is good but had some difficulties in accessing the central facilities for our genomics experiments.

Productive Work place

I was lucky to get a good boss, so was very happy with the work and life here. The co-workers are friendly and the admin staff are co-operative. Look forward to further opportunities.

Lack focus

Although the job has many benefits, the lack of focus and seriousness in creating products out of their research is really demoralizing.

Tough work but you can write good papers

It depends on the supervisor of a group whether a job is hard or not. My boss requires me hard working, so it is hard for me. However, I can submit very good papers in good journals. If you want to write good papers, this is good working place.
