Hear from a colleague on what Ambition means to them.

“The support I received at Queen’s really helped to build my confidence to apply for my current Lectureship role. It also meant that I was able to focus more on the areas I wanted to research in, and that support is what brought me to where I am today.“

Linda Oyama, School of Biological Sciences
