Poll in influential magazine The Scientist places university third in the world, and top in Europe.

Dundee University voted best European place to work in academia

The University of Dundee has been voted Europe’s "Best Place to Work in Academia" in an annual worldwide survey compiled by The Scientist magazine.

Readers of the influential magazine voted Dundee into third place in their list of international institutions - those based outside of the USA - behind The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel.

Dundee was also voted third internationally in an earlier poll this year, also carried out by The Scientist, on the best places to work for post-doctoral researchers.

Professor Pete Downes, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Dundee, said: "It is extremely satisfying to once again see our international reputation reflected in this poll, which gathers the views of researchers working in major institutions all around the world.

"Dundee has performed consistently well in this poll over several years and it is a reflection of one of our great strengths, as an international centre of excellence in life sciences and medical research.

"We continue to attract people from all over the world to come and work in Dundee, where they join an extremely strong research base at the University."

In the poll, readers of The Scientist ranked Princeton University as the top institution in the U.S. and The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia as the top international academic institution.

The Scientist said of the top ranking institutions: "Many of these institutions have performed consistently well in the rankings over recent years - readers cite opportunities for advancement and research resources as their major strengths."

The magazine’s Associate Editor Edyta Zielinska, who oversees the Best Places surveys, added: "We are pleased to give our readers the opportunity to report what they love and hate about their institutions through the Academia survey."
