  • \What types of positions are available?
  • How do scientists work as a team?
  • What mentoring is available?
  • Is acquiring the techniques used in the lab a component in my long-term research goals?
  • Are there plenty of opportunities to attend scientific meetings and network with other colleagues in order to broaden my exposure?
  • Is it possible to publish?
  • Are there opportunities to do Industrial postdocs? What benefits/consequences are there to doing a postdoc in industry?
  • Is the salary that much better than academics?
