I just got a job offer to work in the qbri institute in Doha. It sounds like a fantastic opportunity as this is a new research centre with a cancer unit which is my area of expertise. The salary seems OK to me and they will arrange accomodation for me.
However,I was offered only a 1 year contract. I'm a bit anxious as I have never visited Qatar before and find a move from UK with my fiance/husband quite a big step for 1 year.
What are your experiences? Should we visit before moving? Does anyone have experience with/connection within the QBRI? Is it common to get short contracts in Qatar or in other words is that their version of a probation period?How do the future prospects look like in Doha?
Any advice/tips are welcome as I need to decide by this Thursday. Thanks everyone, Julie
