Pros

Good working environment and friendly coworkers. First and second post doc positions have been similar and worthwhile. Research is fun and interesting with good development progress.

Cons

Teaching opportunities have been fine and easily attainable for me as I was an undergraduate here, however many colleagues haven't been able to get experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Post docs should be found college affiliation.

    Pros

    I spent 3 months at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Oxford during my PhD studies. I was a great opportunity to work with state-of-the-art medical devices such as MEG and fMRI sanners, with best processing techniques. The Principal Investigators were very welcoming, we had meetings to share ideas, and the data was provided to me, so that I could develop my own ideas.

    Cons

    No compensation. Went at my own costs.
