This is what brought me to Hamburg/Benefits from PIER (Cooperation of DESY and Universität Hamburg):
International and young environment, interesting research topic and possibility for European collaboration through EU scholarship, courses to develop myself outside my research field (e.g. soft-skills), long international stays at collaborating institutions.
