Where does Amy Farrah Fowler work? - Free stock photo of accomplishment, achievement, business

Wikipedia and the BBT wiki both say she's a neurobiologist, but I can't find any indication as to where she works. She's not at Cal Tech with the guys, except when she specifically goes there for a project. Is it ever specified?

Best Answer

There is no information on Amy's job in or out of universe at this time. All we know is that it is not Caltech, she's a researcher, and was kicked off the monkey project due to some mutual poop throwing.

Update: As of Season 7, Amy got moved to Caltech, but the specifics of the arrangement isn't detailed. We do not know if she got hired there, under a research grant, a collaboration between two universities or a private company and Caltech, or even if the space is just rented. This seems to have ended as of Season 10.

Answer 2

In 'The Re-Entry Minimization' Amy suggests going to the UCLA cadaver lab to play real-life Operation. If she has privileges there, perhaps that's where she works.

Answer 3

In The Vacation Solution there was a research poster outside Amy's lab. I got curious and googled it, and what visible parts of the title and authors seem to match this paper with authors from UCLA, Brown University and Germany. Since universities usually display their own researchers' published posters I'd assume that it is in UCLA.
