UCL voted best place for postdocs to work

24 January 2011

UCL has been voted the best place for postdoctoral researchers to work, for the second consecutive year, in an international survey run by The Scientist magazine.

UCL placed first among the institutions based outside the US, and came top among non-US institutions in the following categories:

  • quality of training and mentoring
  • quality of communication
  • value of the postdoctoral experience
  • equity
Dr Rodrigo Young

Rodrigo Young is a postdoctoral researcher in Professor Steve Wilson’s laboratory in CDB, studying the cell signalling and genetic mechanisms that drive eye development.

He said: “One of the reasons that UCL provides an outstanding environment for postdocs is that the university is home to a very broad diversity of research groups. In my field of biomedical research, this spans the full spectrum from fundamental, basic studies to medical and translational research. This makes the environment very conducive to establishing fruitful collaborations that cut across different fields and approaches.  In my case, this has enabled me to establish collaborations in new research areas with colleagues working at the Institute for Child Health that, I think, have really brought benefits to all involved in the projects.”
