Brigham and Women’s Hospital has once again been named a “best place to work.” This year, BWH placed 17th in The Scientist’s survey of the Best Places to Work Academia 2013. The results of this year’s survey made it clear that scientists value the financial and research support they receive from their employers. Some of BWH’s highlighted strengths from the survey were pay, infrastructure and the work environment.


In another survey by The Scientist earlier this year, BWH was also listed as one of the 10 Best Places to Work for Postdocs 2013. The annual survey concludes more than a decade of highlighting the institutions that treat postdoctoral researchers as valued members of the scientific community. The survey found that postdoctoral researchers wanted attentive principal investigators, the security of knowing their training would advance their career, and pay and benefits packages that aligned with specialized experience and expertise.

The Scientist is the premier magazine for life sciences professionals and is dedicated to covering a wide range of topics central to the study of cell and molecular biology, genetics and other life-science fields.
