Collaborative work environment
A typical day at work involves interacting and managing graduate and undergraduate students, and conducting your own research work. You get the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects.
The pay for a post-doc can vary between departments. If you are an individual with only your own living expense to take care of, the usual $40,000 per annum salary works fine. However, that is not always the case, and therefore the only thing that is unfortunate about a post-doc is the pay is not great for the amount of work you do and the skills you bring to the table.
