PhD Student Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia in November 2009.
Interview Details – FTC requires a document describing the work you propose to do (with a calendar), a description of the state of the art, 1-2 advisors, 3 reference letters, and your CV.
Interview Question – there was no interview View Answer
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation process. The application is reviewed by a juri using only the documents you supply.
PhD Student Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia in September 2008.
Interview Details – The hiring process consists of preparing a research statement of about 2.000 words along with 2 or 3 reference letters. Your academic resume is also taken into strong consideration along with your institution of choice. The reviewing process is considerably unfair since different reviewers seem to apply very different criteria and the general guidelines published by the employer are rarely followed.
