I have been working at University of Tennessee full-time

Pros

Institute is funded jointly by NSF and others, postdocs can work with local mentors and are also encouraged to collaborate with people all over the world. Travel is very well supported, lots of chances to meet with experts in the area.

Cons

Not a big fan of highly controlled Ubuntu computers. Campus is kinda ugly, should spend more money on improving academics than paying 10 football coaches.

    I have been working at University of Tennessee part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy work with lots of downtime. Usually, there will be food at least once a week are so and you are free to help yourself to the leftovers.

    Cons

    Long, boring hours. Sometimes you will be asked to complete a remedial task that, although easy, is mind numbing and can take days to complete.
