Intense Research and Teaching University
University Lecturer (Chemistry) (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – October 28, 2018
Typical United States research culture - if you are clever and creative, and willing to work 12-16 hour days, 7 days a week, then you will absolutely find a career path here. The chemistry faculty is, in my mind, one of the best in the world. The mass spec facility is equipped with excellent instruments, and expert staff to operate them. The NMR facility includes cryo 600 and 800 MHz magnets, and can meet just about any reasonable request. The physcial sciences store room is a little expensive; be prepared to order everything direct from the supplier.
A really great school. Would recommend to anyone wanting to pursue a research position at any level.
