Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Columbia University (New York, NY).

Interview

The initial application was about 3 months before the interview, and then the interview process consisted of one 30 minute telephone interview. Then there was a 1/2 day interview with different groups within department. Offer was made within 2 weeks of interview, and then started a few weeks later. Everything was very professional.
