    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at A*Star in July 2007.

    Interview Details

    In general, the interview process in A*Star is mostly related to the scientific project that you have worked on
    (I join A*Star right after graduation, and was working on a simulation project during my undergrad years).

    There were two interviewers, one of them typically is your future supervisor (the one that'd like to hire you).

    Most of the questions revolving around the details of the scientific projects, and your personality (the match test, so to speak)

    Interview Questions
    • Details of the scientific project asked by interviewer (even though they never do this type of research before).

      People in A*Star tends to be smart, so they can dig out many details from your description, so be sure you really nail down your science project.
