The Danforth Center employs 39 postdocs. More than 1,500 postdocs responded to this year’s survey. Last July the Danforth Center ranked #8 in the publication’s “Best Places to Work in Academia” survey of life scientists with a permanent position.

Respondents were asked to assess their working environment according to 38 criteria in 9 different areas including quality of training and mentoring, quality of facility and infrastructure, quality of communication and career development opportunities and networking.

The postdoctoral years are a time for getting any guidance in valuable skills required for the transition, such as grant writing, networking, and lab leadership.

Postdocs at the Danforth Center receive guidance from their Principal Investigator but also gain additional skills through the Committee for Scientific Training and Mentoring (CSTM), a group of researchers, postdocs, graduate students and technicians interested in furthering their own scientific training and mentoring.

“CSTM exists to bring career training and development opportunities to the scientific staff within the Danforth Center, foster a sense of community through scientific discussions and social functions, and facilitate communication throughout all levels of the center,” said Aimee Terauchi, postdoc, Danforth Plant Science Center and senior representative of CSTM.

“Postdocs are highly valued and contribute greatly to our research. CSTM is a great organization to enhance the mentoring and professional development they need to reach their career goals,” said Dmitri Nusinow, principal investigator.

The top 10 U.S. institutions are:

1 - Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, MA
2 - The J. David Gladstone Institutes, San Francisco, CA
3 - Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA
4 - Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
5 - Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Oklahoma City, OK
6 - Argonne National Laboratory, IL
7 - La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology, CA
8 - Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, Saint Louis, MO
9 - Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, MA
10 - Stowers Institute for Medical Research, Kansas City, MO

The full survey results and methodology are detailed in the article “Best Places to Work for Postdocs: 2012,” appearing in The Scientist’s April issue and online at the-scientist.com.
