    Graduate Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Georgia Tech in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    Had to communicate with individual professors separately, and see if I am a good fit for their research lab, and vice versa. Usually through emails. In many cases, there is no reply or a short reply, and the professors have very busy schedules.

    Interview Questions
    • In my case, getting into the lab wasn't difficult. Mostly it's performing after I got in, and whether the professor thinks he should fund me or not based on my performance after a semester or two. It seems almost contractual every semester. I do not know for sure whether I will be kept as GRA, or whether I will be paid a different amount, each semester.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Know more about the professor you will be working with. Having the terms of the GRA upfront, and clear seems to make things clear for everyone. However, not having a clear beginning, and not knowing what is expected of you, makes things more difficult as you go through the phd program.
