Senior Clerk (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 24 October 2017

Research Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 24 September 2017
At Memorial I worked as assistant to a researcher in Genetics, maintaining and updating a database of pedigrees (family trees) using the Cyrillic and Progeny computer programs, which were new to me. I also maintained the associated filing system of medical information, and did typing and reprographic work as required.
It was a very friendly place to work, and my bosses were always very appreciative of what I did.
It was very rewarding to produce a complicated pedigree and work out how to make the program do what I needed it to do.
The hardest part was waiting to find out if research funding was going to be available, and having to give up the job when the funding ran out.
Graduate Student (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 2 September 2016
Memorial University offers young researchers ample opportunity to gain practical research skills and exposure to various facets of their field. Memorial's library is well stocked and labs are very well equipped. The atmosphere is friendly and support staffs are always willing to help. A good place to start your career in specialized fields of engineering.
Good place to work if you manage to get a permanent position.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 12 August 2016
A typical day of work consisted of setting up experiments for the lab. I developed good language skills towards instructing first-year students basic courses in Biology. Management is terrible in this place, the science building is collapsing and seems to be a very bureaucratic place to make an impact to Newfoundlanders. Co-workers are good, in my area all of us young and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job is not getting paid enough, compared to other major Universities in Canada MUN, pay grades are low. The must enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility.
