"I worked for a research group in the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University for one year during my graduate studies there. It was an incredible learning experience, and the skills and knowledge acquired will serve me for the rest of my career. It is an excellent complement to graduate coursework."

"Stanford overall is a good employer, but is known to underpay its administrative and support staff. They get away with it because of their name. With an administrative role you will probably need two incomes, or roommates, and you may have a very long commute because the salary does not afford a place near campus. What department you work in will also highly affect your experience. As it is often said, people don't quit their jobs, they quit their bosses. Stanford is huge, and departments and experiences vary."

Post Doctoral Researcher
in Stanford, CA

"I am actually post-doc. It very much depends on PIs. I really dont recommend to start it if you have any doubt about PI. It is very competitive and you only work to satisfy PIs needs. After all, hard work and little salary, you may still end up in industry. If you have good experience with group and PI within a year, keep going. If not, leave. On the other hand, stanford does not provide much benefits for postdocs. No retirement, no life insurance. Health insurance is the best one."
