    Pros

    As a researcher, you have flexibility for your work and you could plan your work relatively independently. The university has pretty modern equipments and good infrastructure.

    Cons

    The job of researcher is mostly offered based on 1-year or 2-year contracts. Salary is acceptable, not very high, and one should not expect high bonus.
