    Location - Oxford is a great city specially if you like Science and Academia in general as there is plenty with free talk by very important lectures every so often.

    Flexibility - as for most non-profit organization in the UK you have flexible hours and home-work when necessary.

    Cons

    You still probably would get pay better in a company, but the pay is nonetheless good.

    I worked at Oxford University as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I spent 3 months at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Oxford during my PhD studies. I was a great opportunity to work with state-of-the-art medical devices such as MEG and fMRI sanners, with best processing techniques. The Principal Investigators were very welcoming, we had meetings to share ideas, and the data was provided to me, so that I could develop my own ideas.

    Cons

    No compensation. Went at my own costs.
