An academic job is really different. Not much to tell. How many characters are needed in order for me to be able to move to another window. Oh there is a requirement of 150 min. I guess I am done.

As a researcher, your working hour and how you work all depend on you and your supervisor(s). It can be tough or free. However, this is not a place for staying long.

A progressive thinking and very friendly atmosphere. Co-workers are open, friendly, and most of us care greatly about the state of Hong Kong. Work is very much based on self-motivation, people tend to take jobs according to how much they can handle, no one is pressured into anything but all of us contribute regardless. Great job safety, but very little in terms of career progression as a Research Associate unfortunately.
Pros
Great atmosphere and friendly environment, relatively relaxed work.
Cons
Little progression, can be a little claustrophobic due to self-contained environment.

Working in the school campus where you have been in 3 years is very comfortable. Helping your ex-professor to do the research is meaningful and enjoyable.

Worked on developing AI software and toy robots. We had a good work environment and we used to go swimming every day before lunch. We could easily get required electronics from "sham shui po" market. Public transport is very good in hong kong. We also used to go for hikes nearly every month.
