The young PI

Negotiating...

Nodalpoint hosts this comment, describing the requirements of the young PI for his new position - I have heard many people talking about such matters recently, and (as a young PI), was a little amused. The more you push such questions, the less you will get - your superiors need to be for you, or you should not join. The competition should be between the people wanting to get good people, not the other way round.

Even "competition between the ranks" is not a real show stopper, as long as it is not very destructive. If the environment is of substantial size, competition is unavoidable, after all, there's only one first author.
As a PI you need to be in a supportive environment (check), have access to computing resources (check - I have to share them but don't need to administer them...) and be able to draft the project that The Authorities (your dep head or the grants) support. If you fail, you shouldn't start anyway.
