    I have been working at UC San Francisco full-time (more than an year)


    UCSF has a great research environment and a very good infrastructure. This makes it easy to do research, form collaborations for scientific progress. Several eminent scientists, even Nobel laureates, work at UCSF and there are opportunities to interact with them, learn about their research, advice etc. UCSF has a very good interface with industry which gives postdocs a chance to hear about working in the industry. The office of career development at UCSF is available to postdocs to develop their career path.
    The lab environment is genial and give freedom to work at own pace.


    Living in San Francisco is expensive. Compensation for postdocs compared to the work they put in is negligible. Work contracts for postdocs are only for 1 year which makes it difficult to plan ahead. Especially for international postdocs, many problems arise with having just a 1 year visa.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    UCSF should seriously consider paying their postdocs more. If this entails hiring fewer (but exceptional) postdocs, then they should do it.
    Once the capabilities of an employee are ascertained (one year from appointment), postdocs must be given longer contracts.
    The office of career development should provide more information/training for jobs outside academia and industry to postdocs.
    Alternatively, graduate students should be trained so that they can be qualified for other jobs after they graduate, that are outside academia or industry, e.g., science communication

    Positive Outlook
