Smart people, beautiful and fun city, not enough money or time

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsThe research environment is really stimulating and collaborative. There are always great seminars and new postdocs coming from other places to befriend and/or learn from. The faculty are all really passionate about doing good science, and it makes for a great training environment. In addition, there are numerous bay area science & technology events to attend.

ConsIt is incredibly expensive to live in San Francisco and UCSF does not account for the cost of living - salaries here for postdocs and graduate students are the same as they are in Nashville, TN, for example. Also, because the training environment is so top-notch, and the state of funding in science is so dire, many PIs are stressed and many people work 60-90 hours a week.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
