I am a wet-lab neuroscience undergraduate who is interested in switching to computational biology (so basically a complete newbie here). I just got a bioinformatics master’s offer from ETH Zurich in Switzerland and I am seeking for advice to decide whether to take it or not. As a non-EU citizen from China, one of my concerns is that it will be very difficult for me to find a job there after graduation, due to their policies to hire Swiss or EU-citizens prior to people outside of these categories. Therefore, I am most likely going to start my career in another country, and up to this point I am interested in getting a job in industry over academia. Although nowadays most of the scientific communities are very international but job hunting in somewhere completely new seems daunting. So, my question is, how difficult it is to find a bioinformatic job in a country that I haven’t been around (therefore little chance of knowing people and building a network that may help with job hunting) in the field of computational biology or it is rather an unnecessary concern? In this case, would my master’s degree offer still be very valuable? Looking forward to your thoughts, thanks!
