I studied my M.A.Sc. degree at the University of British Columbia. It is a fun place to be, and there are lots of opportunities for you to explore. However, it could be better one day.

It was not a pleasant memory for me. My supervisor forced me to quit what I wanted to do. Thus, I quit my doctoral project and moved to masters'. My funding was stopped without any notice.

Working as a Research Assistant at UBC gives you a good amount of freedom to pursue the research of your interest while working with a really diverse set of people. Your supervisor plays a really important role in your learning and project progress, hence, be wise in choosing one.

Best part of any academic job is being relatively free to ask your own questions. A typical day would include performing experiments, discussing ideas with colleagues and attending a seminar from a researcher at a collaborating university. Near grant submission time, days are mostly filled with writing proposals and staff meetings.
