"Ready to move out of a longstanding position in academia and apply what I have formally learned - my PhD experience was unique in a research group of post professionals in the context of a human clinical trial and felt much like an academic startup. I gravitate towards collaborative, interdisciplinary and interactive fields, subject matter and work environments and while my background is diverse, the skills are transferable to industry."

"University as a whole is excellent. Experience can vary depending on department. Pay is lower than normal and system for raises is extremely restrictive. However benefits and work/life balance cannot be beat."
