"I worked as a lab researcher for a year in the Rider group. I was able to work independently and in groups. We had freedom to do what we thought was necessary with some guidance. Lab mates were great and it was a lot of fun."

Graduate Teaching Assistant
in Washington, DC

"I enjoyed my time as a Graduate Teaching Assistant with the GWU School of Business. It was a different experience to be an assistant to a professor at another school from being a law student yourself. I would highly recommend anybody looking for an on-campus job to work with my professor."

Postdoctoral Research Associate
in Saint Louis, MO

"I've been in this position for almost 4 years. As postdoc considered as a training position, we are not compensated for our education and experience. What makes being a postdoct at WashU worse is that once you are hired there is barely any increase in salary (~1%). Even as a 4th year postdoc I make about $40,000/yr when NIH suggested minimum is $48,000.However, other than the pay this place is amazing place to be, good work environment, leadership, infrastructure, etc."

"The Department of Neurology seems to be in a constant state of flux, with the recent loss of the IT Director and the Business Director. Both are busy trying to make their mark on the department, restructuring departments and making cuts that are impacting the users ability to perform their jobs, and making the lives of their patients more difficult in the process. I would highly recommend avoiding the Department of Neurology at Washington University."
