University Job
 
Hi everyone, I have a job offer from a university in the UAE. I was wondering if anyone here worked in the university sector? I'd be interested to know what you think of it, and what would be a good offer for a professorial role.

I've been reading the threads about the impact of covid etc - people's business struggling, people leaving. I was wondering how COVID impacts day to day life outside of work?

Thanks in advance.

Hi
Would you mind sharing with us which university? there is a huge variation between them and some are really bad.

Hi, I'd rather not say specifically - but you might reflect on what you think are the good ones and/or ones to avoid? Obviously, there's the different university rankings, with UEAU and Khalifa doing well, but then this excludes the international branch campuses on NYU, Wollongong, HW etc.

International branch campuses are the best as they escaped budget cut. UAEU is not among the top ranking unis in UAE anymore. KU is full of bureaucracy and HR is horrible. They had budget cut last year.
