Bohemian thoughts in Switzerland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

As a postdoctoral researcher, I have been studying at ETH in Switzerland. Here I introduce what and how I'm thinking in daily life in a freewheeling way. Daily life in Zurich comes at a heavy price, but is convenient and comfortable same as that in Tokyo. Regarding study, the system of laboratory is quite different from Japan. There is not a big difference between postdocs and Ph.D. students. And only salaried people take part in scientific studies. Technical staffs for IT and experiments are well organized so that researchers can concentrate on their studies. Surrounded by such a nice environment, I'm enjoying research with my colleagues in a pleasant atmosphere. Finally, I wrote some advice on how to apply to foreign positions as a postdoc. I wish this column could be of help to students and postdocs who have an interest in studying abroad.
