    Since this was a graduate student position, you just apply online. After acceptance there is a recruitment event in which new potential graduate students get the opportunity to meet with senior grads/postdocs and advisors. Individual meetings are set up for advisors you are interested in. Generally you will meet with the advisor, and separately with their students. Expect to hear back pretty quickly (~1 week).
