    The maternity/paternity/shared parental leave scheme is excellent. Since the university signed up to the Athena SWAN charter for women in science, I believe the shared parental leave scheme goes beyond the minimum legal requirements, and is available to staff in all divisions (not just science).

    None existant for postdocs.
