    Very good health insurance scheme and generous vacation time was included. Salary was not huge but since I was just starting off, I thought it was decent.

    Great environment for research, beautiful campus. The location is quite convenient since it's just 30-min drive distance to Chicago if you want a party at weekend. Or just enjoy the quiet and beautiful Evanston city, if you focus on work at weekdays.
