A Career in Durham Biosciences
Thinking of joining us as an ECR?
What are some of the best aspects about working in the Department of Biosciences?
Around a third of the department joined in the last 8 years. It is great working in an environment with so many new PI's with new approaches to answering biological questions. Peter
I really appreciate my research freedom. The department has always allowed me to pursue my research interest. I also find that freedom on my teaching, I am able to discuss the areas I find more relevant and link them with my investigation. Miguel
Being included in the new PI WhatsApp group before I even started helped me a lot and gave me the possibility to ask many questions informally to those who were in my situation not so long ago. Vincent
I had to do no teaching in the first year. Master students are easy to recruit and overall students are good. Lena
What's the best part about Durham / Northern England?
It's great to be so close to Newcastle, the coast and the hills. Tim

County Durham is by far the most dog-friendly place I have ever lived in! Karrera
