    Pros

    vibrant work atmosphere with great facilities and strong young students who are willing to learn. An excellent environment for young scientists trying to expand their expertise.

    Cons

    As with any postdoctoral position, the pay is rather low. The hours are typically long and projects, because of their cutting edge nature, often experience setbacks. However, this is typical for basic scientific research.
