    Able to feel free without being hindered by management or supervisors observations. Able to progress & develop as an employee without feeling the need to progress on a pre-defined path.

    Surrounded by world renowned scientists. Cutting edge science is occurring in most departments. Excellent campus. Dundee is a great place to live and is fairly inexpensive.

    Set out clearer working hours and conditions and make sure that they are adhered to.
