Re: Postdoc tax question

Hi, I'm a Chemist PostDoc and all you are writing sounds to me really interesting. My PostDoc is paid a bit less than Lee's (78000 CHF), but over 12 months instead of 13. I pay more taxes (the swiss and the company's "Pensionkasse"), so that also monthly I have a little less. After my german Phd salary and my italain fellow, I thought to be rich, now I see, I'm just normal.. (anyway happy). My feeling of being rare as a Postdoc ina company seems to be correct. I'd be happy to discuss impressions and experiences with other people in the same position! I live in Basel and I'm going to stay at least for anoother year.

Ciao ciao

ale
