    Ich arbeite bei University of Cambridge (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Lots of possibilities, international environment, steep earning curve thanks to plenty of smart people around you, great facilities with numerous possibilities for personal and academic development

    Kontras

    Not much I can think off. Keep in mind that Cambridge is not big even though the activities and clubs you will find their are numerous, it is a cute and touristic city that sometimes can feel a bit small.

    Ich habe bei University of Cambridge gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    Supportive working environment, good work-life balance, outside of work opportunities, interaction with colleges optional. It is probably a more traditional place to work, so you need to be proactive to look for opportunities that certainly exist.

    Kontras

    Salary OK for Cambridge for singles or couples. It becomes difficult to rent a bigger house for family in Cambridge. Easy commute from all around the city. Many departments are in the heart of the city centre.

    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe bei University of Cambridge gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    Great minds, inspiring surroundings and unlimited leading seminars, lectures, working groups, conferences in even the most specialised areas.

    Kontras

    Pay is below university standard. Research associates (post PhD) at Cambrudge get paid the same as research assistants (pre-PhD) at Oxford. And both are below many other London and Scottish universities among others. Not all talent will stay for the privilege and struggle to make ends meet.

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei University of Cambridge gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    World class institution with exceptional colleagues, challenging work and beautiful surroundings. Pay was implemented on a grade system and completely transparent.

    Kontras

    It is an expensive city to live in. If unaffiliated to a college can be quite isolating. Finding teaching work is not intuitive.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei University of Cambridge (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    There is a very stimulating intellectual environment. There is also a lot of encouragement to develop ideas that you have. You may also be given more responsibility at an earlier stage in your career than with other universities.

    Kontras

    The research facilities can be poor. Post-docs do not have proper access to the colleges so cheap accommodation is hard to get and the social life leaves a lot to be desired. By far the worst thing is the length of contracts. It's very difficult to live your life in one to three year chunks, however this is true of doing a post-doc anywhere.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei University of Cambridge (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    One of the best Universities worldwide - which means great faculty, postdocs, graduate students and undergrads. As a scientist it all depend on the specific field/department/group you join, of course. Note - HFSP fellowship may be done through your department. Your Dep would love that, but your research and travel money will have to go through them and won't have the flexibility of having it in your bank account and at the end just sending a financial report+receipts. My advice - even if they sort of assume it - insist and it'll work (because those are the HFSP guidelines). I did so. This may very well work with other sources of external funding - I don't know. Try to find people who have one the same fellowship before and used it in Cambridge - from the website of the funding body's list of recent awardees.

    Kontras

    Well, of course the weather... seriously - sometimes, as any University I guess - bureaucracy is a little too much. Also - computer services can be really problematic and un-21 century Oh, finally - cost of keeping lab animals are very high
