    Pros

    My group is constantly encouraging its members to improve themselves personally, academically, and scientifically. There is a very healthy and collaborative environment.

    There is a very good golf course and an Olympic pool right beside the laboratory and the day is too short to play a full 18 holes, swim a few thousand meters, and work 8 hours
