Not fun

A typical day included in-vivo testing of drug formulations used to prevent or reduce the onset of Parkinson's Disease or symptoms produced from the use of levodopa.Unfortunately the PI for this position was not very well involved with the technicians on hand. It was not clear the direction to which the research was heading.The senior scientists lacked any management expertise which left for an uncomfortable work environment.UHN has a two year maximum for contract positions leading to a high turnover of staff to reduce potential costs that would be incurred by a full time permanent worker. While I do not fault UHN for the hiring practices, they do not provide any protection or ability for growth for their contract employees.

Pros

developed experience in in-vivo, database design, behavioural analysis and pharmaceutical drug testing.

Cons

very poor management.
