Postdoc/research position in asia vs US

  1. Jan 15, 2014 #1
    Given the rising influence of China's economy, is it reasonable to search for a postdoc/research position in China for a few years to learn the culture and potentially network with global companies? I'm thinking of this from a "I'll be a more valuable employee" once I start looking for a more permeant industry job. I know basic Chinese b/c I've studied at Tsinghua U for a few semesters during college.

    I'm thinking of the potential to gain a wider network/connections via doing a temp research position at a major Chinese university. Does this sound reasonable? Or should I stick with jumping into corporate America upon getting a phd in physics?
