A good place for PhD candidate in Physics

PhD Candidate In Physics (Current Employee)
Leiden (Netherlands)

Pros1) The faculty has a few world-class professors.
2) It also has very good research facilities.
3) PhD candidates get paid.

ConsDutch government is cutting off research funds in all its universities.
Normally, a PhD candidate needs to be a teaching assistant apart from being a researcher. That consumes some time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Don't stick around for too long, unless you never want to worry about job security

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Leiden (Netherlands)

    I worked at Leiden University


    Pros: If you have a great plan, you can just go for it - get people interested, and you'll have plenty of facilities to make it… Cons: Non-scientific staff are generally only motivated to keep everything as it is, they're incredibly scared of change. This stifles innovation of any kind, and energetic,… Advice to Senior Management: Make people proud to be working at one of the world's best-known universities. Not unfounded arrogance, but show them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
