It seems they are not really suited for what we expect from postdocs here, but they could be a decent technician.From my experience, the training system seems much different in some countries. I have worked with PhDs and Postdocs that needed very specific instructions and were not able/willing to work independently. When given specific instructions, they were amazing, but without it they didnt know what to do. I can only assume they are products of their system as they were not stupid by any means. Regardless, do not recommend them for positions you know they will not do well in. It is not fair to the postdoc or the potential future supervisor.
