Scientific Technician

Working as a Scientific Technician means that I have to travel abroad and Domestic travels include the Dept. of Environmental Research Monitoring Lines where it was expected that I spend more that ninety (90) days at sea during Research Cruises.

Good environment to learn new things, I have learnt a lot of things about nature conservation

I was a great experience, the staff is amazing and always willing to help. As a person coming from terrestrial plant background, it was a bit challenging at first but I have managed to adapt very easily.

Great place to work

This is a really great place to work but there are no opportunities for growth. There are only entry level positions and no advancement. You are forced to leave once your contract has ended and there is no promise for renewal.

A productive and exciting place to work

On a typical day at work, the staff base has been assigned into different departments. I learned how to work as a team and also developed my management skills. The management is professional. The workplace culture is good because of the staff consist of a blend of different cultures. The hardest part of the job is having to meet up with deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job is having to work with motivated people.

Pros

Room for growth

Cons

Less diversity of skills and knowledge
