Speaking to the publication, David Assinder, school administrator at the city's ocean science establishment, explained some unique facilities are on offer.

Other areas which come in for praise are the Eden Project in Cornwall, Exeter's Met Office and the UK Energy Research Centre in Scotland.
Those looking to get out of the lab might want to consider working in the City of London, putting their maths skills to use on financially-related algorithms.
