Harvard University Employee

"Resources are plenty, the real experiences varies a lot depending on your adviser. Postdocs in some labs (biology or chemistry) may take 5 years or more. Before you join, think about what you want to be after 5 years. Look at the past members as they will provide a good idea where you will be. But some labs simply get a lot of people and only the best and fortunate did well. Do the math."
