ABSTRACT
This article discusses the disadvantages of having a postdoctoral degree in a scientific career. Having a postdoctoral position would mean some mental adjustment affecting one's professional image. This impacts the relationship with the principle investigator and the students within the research group. A postdoctoral graduate may experience unfair expectation from graduate students as he is expected to have more capabilities in academic work.
