Cornell University is a good place for research work

Postdoctoral Associate (Current Employee)
Ithaca, NY (US)

I have been working at Cornell University full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of top professors, scientists, and researchers to collaborate with. The university has excellent atmosphere to discuss scientific questions. It also provides plenty of resources for various studies.

ConsThe campus locates in a small and relatively isolated town. The internet speed is much slower than most universities. The weather is too cold if you are from some warm places.
