Looking for a good supervisor at Uni
Dear all, I'm a master graduate who is looking for a PhD position in Zurich/Basel region. From my master I have a 2nd author paper in a journal with Impact Factor close to 30. My focus is in biology. For my PhD lab, to me the subject doesn't matter as much as the people I'm going to work with. I dont want to torture myself by working with bad colleagues and bad boss for 3-4 yrs. I've seen how bad profs can treat their students in some ETH labs. I have also known people who had to quit due to the lack of support from the supervisors, while being pushed constantly to deliver results. It's both physically and emotionally traumatic. I can withstand being pushed, that's how I published paper before. But I dont want to end up being pushed and not receiving enough support. I have been there, it's just wont work. Do you know any professor, or rumors of any professors who is known to be less nasty than the rest? My target group is labs at UniBasel, UZH, ETH and other research institutes, such as FMI in Basel which belongs to Novartis. Thanks in advance for your information!
