The nature of the job is by nature flexible but dictated by requirements of experimental work which often means long hours, overnight work and/or weekends

It depends on your supervisor, but in general they are more goal oriented. This means that you can distribute your time as you like as soon as they see progress and results. This allow you to freely decide what is best for you and for example join courses, practice sports or also work from home (when possible).

Current Process Technician in Cambridge, East of England, England, England, England

The work hours are quite flexible but you can't finish to work after 5:30 pm because you are not covered by the university insurance.

As a PhD Student, you do not get much benefit. However, there is a lot of flexibility and your college can provide a lot of support.

Current Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cambridge, East of England, England, England, England

The PI professors are pretty relaxed about working hours so long as the research gets done. However, the amount of research output that is expected requires many many hours in the week, well beyond the contracted 37.
