Reviews for Research Assistant in University of Sydney

Productive environment with plenty of resources.

I really enjoyed my time working in the University of Sydney. I started as a tutor two subjects and subsequently gained more subjects after that. Besides tutoring, I were also given chance on setup new laboratory demonstration units for Thermal Engineering 1. After the completion of my doctoral degree, I got a change to work with an academic on three consulation projects that helps me broaden up my knowledge.


The pay as tutor is great.


To secure a long term permanent job may be chanllenging.
