Best Countries to Work in as an Academic: Research Findings
For people looking for a job in the private sector, there are numerous sources of information about best places to work, like Fortune Best Companies or Best Places to Work by Glassdoor to name just two.
But while there is a growing pool of information about the corporate world, there is a distinct lack of research about the best places to work in the world of academia. The closest substitutes are the many university rankings published each year, but when choosing a workplace, reputation is not the onlyfactor that is important when making a decision, although it is one factor, as you’ll see in the report. Inspired by the feedback from our users, who represent a good core sample of the academic world globally, earlier this year we ran the “INOMICS Academic Institutions Survey”, where, among other questions, we asked the respondents about their experiences in their respective academic institutions. We grouped the results according to the countries and positions of survey participants (we are planning to release institution-related rankings in the near future. Meanwhile you can see individual reviews here).

Today, we would like to share this insight with you! When reading, keep in mind that although the ranking is based on the personal experiences of the respondents, the aggregated results show clear trends. Therefore we hope that it will help you in your future career decisions as an (aspiring) academic!

Jobs for Foreigners in Brazil: A New Destination for Skilled Migration?
Since its foundation by Portuguese colonists, Brazil, the largest country in Latin America, has experienced an important immigrant flow. Over time, the Brazilian government has influenced this flow by implementing policies that support the needs of the economy.
