Great research, great researchers

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I really enjoyed doing my PhD and following short research project at St Andrew's. I found the facilities advanced, the technicians highly experienced and friendly, and the general atmosphere of working there fantastic, due to the great diversity of projects and people being very condusive to interesting collaborations. My supervisors were also extremely helpful and easy to work with.

University of St Andrews, Art History Department (VRC

Part-time work at the VRC involves sourcing material appropriate for the data-base for the Art History Department. I select film slides and scan them into photoshop; editing, retouching any blemished or scratches. These slides will be used as visual aids for powerpoints for professors as the University. I also assist with the PhD research in sourcing similar film slides and photographs.

Good job but chaotic administration

I really enjoyed doing research there, but getting my pay sorted out was a nightmare. Coordinating meetings with one of the people I worked for was always hard.

Great place to work

Challenging and great work experience, learnt about academic administration, software I wouldn't have used otherwise, more about environmental geography from my supervisor
