I tried to make a sentence:

The job I'm working at doesn't give me a chance to solve sophisticated problems and I have too much free time there.

To me, the subclause I have too much free time there doesn't sound naturally (especially there at the end of the sentence). In fact, I tried to express that the job is simple and I have too much free time. Is my sentence correct? If not, how could I remake it properly?

I would use so since the second clause is a result of the first one:

The job I'm working at doesn't give me a chance to solve sophisticated problems, so I have too much free time.

there is not part of any other phrase, and by itself only serves to point back to the job (location). "there" might be OK if "job" and "job location" are not the same. Or if you need some emphasis in context.

  • It's not quite clear to me what did you mean by there is hanging there by itself. Coudln't you expand it for a little? – Dmitrii Bundin Jul 4 '15 at 20:19

That sounds correct to me, but you could say "when i'm there I have to much free time."
