A vivid collaborative environment full of challenge and innovation
Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – March 16, 2017
Very collaborative and stimulating scientific environment, with basic science and engineering intermingled. Working hard and constantly being challenged is the theme in the lab. Really learned and matured a lot during these 3+ years.

Stanford is a great place to work as a postdoc. Although the cost of living is kinda insane in Bay area, Stanford provide better salaries than other universities. Stanford also provides great resources and platform for postdocs to conduct top-tier research and encourages collaborations.

A lot of collaboration is easily gained in this research oriented institute. The Principal Investigators really encourage new ideas and people who work here are genuinely intelligent and excited to work with others.
Inspiring, super productive, and exciting workplace full of bright, interesting colleagues with a passion for their work and a good sense of humor.

The most exciting part about this place, is that you learn something new every day. You get to work with smart people from all over the world who each have their own experience and expertise, and don't mind sharing it! This was particularly important for me because I hold a PhD in Chemical Engineering and was starting a post-doctoral position in Materials Science, so I had to learn a lot. But it proved to be a very exciting challenge that made me realize that you can do anything as long as you are motivated and persistent. Of course, in research there are always moments that are tough, when you have performed the same experiment already a hundred times or tried to determine an unknown in already a million different ways. But then, the next day, you keep on trying and you succeed, giving you the biggest satisfaction ever! At Stanford, creativity in research is highly supported and students are giving the opportunity to independently explore their talents to full extent. This is what I am seeking in my professional career.
Top level of research facilities and best scientists and technicians

The hardest part of the job is to get used to handle all deadlines, however, after certain time you achieve that. The most enjoyable part of the job is to work with top level scientists and learn something new everyday.
