Former Employee

The team I worked in was lovely and amazing. I was well-supported despite being a foreigner. However, it's a very " kiwi " dominated department.

Former Graduate Research Assistant in Dunedin, Otago, Otago

Good people, fair pay, however, there are not much mobility

21 Aug 2019
Current Lab Demonstrator in Dunedin, Otago, Otago

Essentially none for Lab Demonstrator

30 Jan 2018
Current Assistant Research Fellow in Christchurch, Canterbury, Canterbury

5 weeks annual leave and flexible working arrangements mean that it is easy to take a couple of holidays throughout the year. It is expected that you will take a couple of weeks vacation in summer as the campus closes down for Christmas and New Years.

26 Oct 2015
Current PhD Student in Dunedin, Otago, Otago

Doctoral Candidates do not receive any benefits despite being instrumental to the university's research output
