J'ai travaillé chez Oxford University en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)
Good for your curriculum (if you make the most of it and leave before stagnating)
Attracts highly qualified staff with great backgrounds, but most of them are overqualified for their job.
Career prospects very limited. Competitive, elitist and individualist culture. PIs only worried by their career and getting as much grants as they can, while rarely seen at their office!
Moral harrassment from senior management is common and the University doesn't give a damn. In my department 3 people resigned in less than 2 months and they didn't even conduct an internal investigation (despite written and documented complaints).
Rents outrageously expensive in Oxford, poor public transport system, you need a car if you want to live outside of the city but getting a parking place is nearly impossible.
Conseils à la direction
Train yourself in management!
J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Oxford University (Oxford, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en juillet 2017.
The job description indicated the position reported to Professor A. I spent time applying for and preparing for the interview with this in mind. At the very end of the interview they told me the post would report to Professor B managing a very different project. A complete waste of time! I would not have applied for this position if I'd known.
