    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Inria in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for a post-doctoral researcher position in one of the Inria lab, by following their advertisement in dbworld forum. I had contacted the hiring manager by sending my latest resume, research statement and the transcript of my PhD study. Later I was contacted by the manager for an online interview process over skype. The interview went for 2 hours. In the interview I was basically asked questions about my PhD research topic. I was also asked about my understanding about the current project in which I would be hired and about my learnings from projects that I was a part of in the past. Moreover it was a very informal discussion and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rennes (France)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Inria in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    There is not much to say about the interview process for this job. Selection was made based on Resume and Master grades but most importantly based on previous intern supervisor recommendation. The questions were more about research project, previous studies and the domain of expertise. Overall it was a nice experience, the interviews were scheduled in one day in a very relaxed atmosphere.
