    “You are allowed to work from home if your line manager agrees. You do not need to be present on campus all time.”

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Associate in Birmingham, England

    Very relaxed atmosphere. Am allowed to take holiday whenever needed (as long as good research progress is made). Lots of funding to go abroad for conferences.

    The city does not have much to offer. It is lively but not pleasantly vivid and vibrant. I would stay for a long term.

    As a part-time zero hours contract worker, I was not part of the pension schemes or other perks offered by the university and therefore cannot comment on that.
