    Almost an ideal postdoc experience

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    Prosfreedom to work on my own research and writing
    a chance to collaborate on research with colleagues
    a chance to get teaching experience
    a chance to get experience supervising student research
    funds available for travel to do research and present at conferences

    Conscontract renewals capped at only one (for a total of only two years)
    I would stay longer if given the chance.
    Postdocs are not eligible for on-campus housing, forcing us into the ridiculously expensive Singapore rental market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not restrict on-campus housing to only tenured and tenure-track faculty.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
