Current Employee - Postdoctoral Researcher in Seattle, WA

I have been working at University of Washington full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Seattle is great, the university is vibrant and... well... Seattle is great.

Cons

Large university means a LOT of students, a lot of bureaucracy and a lot of distractions. Football is huge here, so be prepared for a wash of scholl colors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give me a tenured position.

    Pros

    Everybody knows the pros and cons of a postdoc regardless of University

    Pros:

    Flexibility
    Benefits (depending of University)
    Independence

    Cons

    NIH salary regardless of state (that means you get same salary not taking into account cost of living of city)
    NIH maximum amount of years in post-doc is 5-6 years. After this you are on your own.
