Just got offered a job at a small biotech in London (UK). ~£45k plus bonus but only 1YR FTC and no equity.

Pretty sure it's a discovery role too.

I just finished my PhD at a very good uni with 3 years technician experience before that. BSc and MSc also at very good unis with good grades.

I think this offer is well below par, but curious to hear what you guys think/if you have any comparisons?

Thanks in advance :)

Seems standard to me tbh, London wage is significantly lower than the US equivalence.

I’m also from a good uni (top 2 in the UK for both undergrad and PhD) and most of my colleagues are in the range of 30-45k for research/discovery roles.
