    Pros

    20 hr per week; Research related work; Good opportunity to get paid in campus; There will be great balance of work and class. You can arrange your time to do the research and help in the laboratory.

    Cons

    Not too much negative comments here. The only think you may need to consider is that you'd better to stop by a group first and talk with the group members before you talked with the professor who is in charge, since some groups have really heavy load.


  9. Not terrible

    I have been working at University of Nebraska full-time

    Pros

    Benefits aren't bad The work isn't hard, once you realize that the most important things are football, bringing more money to campus, and building new buildings. As long as you keep those priorities in mind, you can just lay low and do all the paperwork you are asked to and no one will bother you.

    Cons

    Football is more important than education Money coming in is more important than the students Money coming in is more important than the staff

    Advice to Management

    If the university cared about the students and the staff, then they would care more about their work. If the job was really to help students get and education, the job could be more than just a paycheck.

    Pros

    In Lincoln, NE the cost of living is reasonable and the University of Nebraska Lincoln has top of the line resources and great advisors.

    Cons

    The location take awhile to get used to with no international airport nearby, however I do like everything about the University itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage young scientists to publish early and present their work at as many national and international conferences as possible.
