Well done to Dundee University, my one time summer employer and where I did my BSc is one of four Scottish Universities to be in the top 100 according to a global ranking of scientific performance conducted by Leiden University. The Scottish Universities in the top 100 are: St Andrews (47th), Dundee (79th), Edinburgh (84th) and Aberdeen (91st). I don’t usually care too much for these rankings but being in the top 100 is pretty good, so well done to all of them. I hope that this will encourage companies to consider working more with Scottish Universities and hence help to build on the talent of excellent researchers and graduates that are available there. More information about the story can be found at The Scotsman.
Also don’t forget where I work now, The University of Luxembourg, we may be comparatively new but offer the chance to work with leading researchers/professors in a range of domains. Also we have excellent links to local and international companies. Check out www.securityandtrust.lu for more info.
