postdoctoral fellow Job Reviews
Women who are postdoctoral fellows have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.5, 50% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $25k-$50k.
As in most science careers, choosing a PI wisely is the best way to find a position supportive of women in science.
I've worked here for 4 years and there are a lot of women working here, both in higher positions and in support roles. As seems to be standard for healthcare and biomedical research, there are more women than men. However, although 12 weeks of maternity leave are provided, none are paid by the university - you have the option to pay for your salary with accrued sick/vacation time. I also feel that most people are pressured not to take the full time available, even if they were able to do so financially. As in most scientific venues, women often feel pressured to match or exceed the dedication level of men in their field to "prove" that they're worth something.
