    Pros

    Collaborative environment and a good formative experience which incentives scientific communication and presentation. Fair technical equipment with access to most common major core facilities plus some specialized instruments.

    Cons

    Poor possibilities of career advancement and developement beyond the post-doc level, a typical problem of italian policy of not financing scientific research.

    Advice to Management

    Department staff and Proffesors are doing best they can given the circumstances; and bad circumstances are created at the governmental level.


  8. A challenging experience within a big (too much?) university
