Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Columbia University (New York, NY) in March 2012.

Interview

Interviewed over the phone, as I was living in the UK at the time. I already knew the people as we are in the same field. Two principal investigators spoke with me for about an hour. It was low-key, since we'd already informally agreed to the position.
