Scientists are encouraged to engage with the research community in many forms, from attending conferences and writing research papers, to contributing to open-source, and public datasets.
Edinburgh has a rare balance of being a thriving capital surrounded by the coast and vast green spaces, so it has something for all tastes, lifestyles and ages. Amazon’s science facility here is located in the city center and boasts views of Edinburgh’s skyline, including Edinburgh Castle.
