I was offered a UKRI funded position. It was advertised as two positions. I negotiated my salary given my experience and the PI refused. Since I am International, I was waiting for my visa so I attended some meetings with the team. During these meetings, I realised that my level is much higher than other postdoc who clearly did not know a lot of stuff.
Unfortunately, no one instructed me on negotiation process, I thought it is all about salary. I did not even know about relocation negotiation. I am not comfortable and I honestly want to reject this offer. It is my first opportunity to work. I need it but I feel I deserved more.
Can I negotiate my relocation expenses to be covered? How to negotiate relocation expenses? What if it failed?
Should I reject the offer or accept it just because I do not have any other opportunity? I am not comfortable doing a job and I know I should have more.
