    Pros

    world-class experts in the field, and world-class research facilities, and smart colleagues. Life is relaxing, and research culture in the UK in general is not as pushy as that in USA

    Cons

    very expensive to live, and salary is general too low to ensure a truly comfortable life.

    Application

We then attended a training session before the interview.
