GRE, combining quality of science with quality of life

We have opportunities for undergraduates, PhD students, Post Docs and Principal Investigators


Life in GRE

We believe that we are most effective working together. This can involve a few words of advice between students or the pooling of resources to build major facilities. We share a communal outlook, research interests, equipment and lab space that provides many opportunities for interaction. Our research provides the opportunity for discovery. We believe that when our research is enjoyable, we will be most innovative.

Life in Dundee, Scotland

“Dundee’s setting is probably more extraordinary than any other city in the UK. It is about as ideal – ludicrously ideal – as any setting could be”

Stephen Fry, Actor and former Rector of the University of Dundee

Dundee is a city in transition. The re-development of Dundee’s waterfront, where the River Tay meets the sea, is one of the largest capital projects in the UK. At its centre is the new Victoria and Albert Museum for Design. Housed in a building by the architect Kengo Kuma, the V&A is a new addition to the creative edge of Dundee that springs from the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.

Dundee lies almost equidistant from not only the vibrant cultural centres of Glasgow and Edinburgh, but the oil capital of Europe, Aberdeen. Dundee is closer still to the ancient University town of St Andrews.

Dundee has unrivalled access to the Scottish Highlands, with some of the most beautiful wild places in Europe. Across the Tay, the wide expanse of sandy beaches at Tentsmuir Nature Reserve is home to hundreds of harbour (common) seals and more than a thousand grey seals. The wild salmon that move through the Tay attract dolphins and seals upstream. Keep your eyes open and you can see them from the waterfront. Thousands of migrating geese pass overhead in Autumn, providing the natural soundtrack to this time of year. Dundee’s geographic location makes it the sunniest and driest city in Scotland, a climate that accounts for its fruit-growing traditions in the surrounding countryside.

We are not alone. With researchers at Dundee University, Ninewells Hospital, The James Hutton Institute and one of the largest biotech clusters in the UK – the Life Sciences sector contributes 16% of Dundee’s GDP – it is clear that many scientists have chosen to build their careers in Dundee.

Together, it means that living and working in GRE offers an unrivalled combination of quality of science with quality of life.
