J'ai travaillé chez University of Cambridge en Contrat Permanent (Pendant plus de 3 ans)
Top-notch research environment. Will be hard to live up to the reputation of those before me! An incredible and unbeatable learning and living environment + study/work-life balance.
Is being increasingly bloated down by red-tape, namely charging research students excessively for use of departmental equipment. I understand there are costs to using equipment but the current approach stifles research.
There is a cancer of "equal outcome" (not opportunity) social-justice-culture brewing in the education and liberal arts faculties. Be careful!
Conseils à la direction
- Direct funding towards research instead of student groups and administration staff.
- Change the "minimum maintenance" figure to something more realistic -- consider that it is the only quotable figure that students can write research grant proposals for, so is ultimately what most receive as funding. Companies are often happy to pay a bit more (student maintenance is small in comparison to the other grant figures) but need a number to cite.
It was very in detailed about the project. It depends on the supervisor and also how you are getting the money for the PhD. The supervisor started with simple questions about the background and did go to more difficult questions, and more in detailed.I advice reading the relevant papers he has published.
