I have been working at University of California Berkeley full-time (Less than a year)
High standard of research; open, smart people; many opportunities to collaborate; a lot of support for career planning
J1 visa is the only visa option for international postdocs. This is an exchange visa, therefore, it is not necessarily suitable for everyone.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.
I got refer from a friend and the process took about 2-3 weeks. The interview was smooth and chill. Just be prepared to explain your research experience and how you tackle technical problems.
