Ever since I could remember, I wanted to live and work in another country to gain as much experience of other people and places as I could. Being a research scientist makes this a very accessible option. I found out about my current role as my partner was already at the University of Calgary as a PhD student. Having a good network of contacts is invaluable when looking for jobs.
