RPI - postdoc

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee)
Troy, NY

I have been working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Prospostodoc position gives flexibility to choose projects (depending on your advisor). troy is a nice place - close to boston, nyc, adirondacks (need a car though), but winters are long and cold.

Consthe pay of a postdoc sucks, but you gain valuable experience in mentoring graduate students and writing proposals and grants.

Advice to Senior Managementmore information and interaction and transparency between management and employees (professors, supporting staff) and even the graduate and undergrad students would help.
