Preferred stay length
I am a 26 year old male from Dunedin, New Zealand that has received funding to do a PhD in Sydney. I am looking for a quiet place to stay for at least one year while I do my research.
I'm looking for a place with quiet, genuine, and down-to-earth people that create a stress-free environment. I don't like to live in other people's pockets, but I like a chat now and then, and I like to be on good terms with the people I live with. I enjoy reading and learning about things that interest me and playing guitar.
In terms of my schedule, I would do some of my work at university and some in the place where I live, as I don't really have to go into university except for seminars, running experiments from time to time, and for meetings with my supervisor.
