A crumbling workplace

The university used to be a present and engaging environment. With the new vice chancelor and the pensions row this has disappeared. A third of the work force are on fixed term contracts, often in niche areas requiring dramatic relocation upon contract completion. There is fear that highly educated personnel will be made redundant.


A job role you love


No job security, dwindling pension, and poor pay compared to industry

A good place

A good place to live in and work. The university has an excellent multi-disciplinary side to it: as a complexity scientist, I was able to meet biologists, engineers, archaeologists, ecosystem modelers... The co-workers were good friends. The job was challenging and interesting.
