Michigan State University among scientists' best places to work

Michigan State University ranks 16th in a recent survey of the best places for scientists to work. The November issue of The Scientist Magazine ranked the top U.S. and international academic institutions according results of an online survey conducted by the magazine. The survey was based on 2,072 responses from readers who identified themselves as life scientists in tenured or tenure-track positions in academia and non-commercial research institutions. The survey asked respondents about job satisfaction, peer relationships, pay, research resources, management, and infrastructure. MSU was the only Michigan institution to make the ranking.
