I have been working at University of Toronto full-time
Open, collaborative, supportive researchers and staff
Can get lost in the crowd. Need to advocate for self and research direction.
Advice to Management
Provide more support for early year PhDs by upper year PhDs.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON) in September-2017.
Applied through Career Learning Network. Submitted my resume but wrote customized detailed cover letters. Got callbacks via phone and email. Went into the interviews shortly after, and received a job offer within a week. Do a lot of research about the specific department before you go in.
U of T has often been perceived as more of a refuge from the city it inhabits rather than its public square... In the Gertler era, however, bold gestures are changing that perception.
Honoured, thankful and inspired.
