    I had a very similar experience during my postdoc. Similarly, it took me quite a while until I started recognizing that this is a personal attitude of my PI, rather than me being unable to deliver the expectations. I discussed the issue with the HOD and administrators at academic level, but I was told that that due to the nature of postdoc position and tenure position of the PI, not much can be done, rather I was advised to change my lab which I did so. Interestingly, later on I was informed by few faculties that my PI is known for this behavior. Anyway, my experience in the new lab turned to be all great. I recovered my self-confidence, proved high productivity and established a strong professional relationship with my PI.
    Sharing my experience with some other postdocs, it appeared that such cases are more common that I thought. Thanks for bringing this this topic up.
