Post-doctoral Fellow (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 28 June 2016
-UBC is a great place to work in terms of job and benefits. UBC is a leading institution in scientific research and there you will work with bright people from all over the world and from different disciplines, and have access to state of the art research facilities. -As a scientist your day-to-day activities depend on the project you are involved and on the people of your lab, specially the principal investigator who sets the goals and the research mood (do your research). - Medical, dental, and optical benefits are great but salaries are not up to living expenses in Vancouver (a problem not unique to UBC). - As a postdoctoral fellow I met many researchers, had the ability of doing independent research, and learned new techniques. - As a postdoc there are few posibilities for doing teaching.

Graduate Administrative Assistant (part time) (Current Employee) – Faculty of Education – 22 December 2015
I work part time on different projects led by different professors from the Faculty of Education. Most of the time I work at home, unless I need to attend meetings or workshops.
I personally enjoy the 'free-lance' nature of my jobs at UBC. The most enjoyable part is to be free to work anywhere. The hardest part, however, is the isolation one feels when he is away from his colleagues.
