I have been working at University of Glasgow full-time (More than 5 years)
Friendly atmosphere, comparable salary to similar roles at other universities. Opportunities to develop within a role. Excellent city to live in.
Not much mentorship if you're on a temporary research only contract. Limited opportunity to be promoted within the University. Very dependent on the relationship you have with your direct line manager which is fine if you get on, less so if you don't.
Advice to Management
Consider your temporary contract staff. We would stay if we encouraged more.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Glasgow (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in April-2017.
A very casual discussion one on one with the personal investigator. Asked about previous work, then a couple of questions related to the project. Was shown the procedure of the tasks in this role, and asked how comfortable I would be following these instructions.
