Cian McCrudden - SWAN Member
I undertook my PhD training in the School of Pharmacy at Queen’s, and have been employed in research fellow positions within the School since graduating. My job entails a mix of laboratory-based practical and computer-based administrative tasks. I am the research staff representative on school board, and sit on the School’s SWAN self-assessment team.
In my time in the School of Pharmacy, my wife and I have become parents, and I have availed of the generous paternity leave that Queen’s staff are entitled to. The nature of the job means that there are often strict deadlines that must be met, and the flexibility afforded by the work environment here has made it easy for me to juggle work and family commitments.
