    Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Howard University in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was a standard academic interview. I knew the people from previous contacts so it was fairly relaxed. I talked about my research experience and we discussed the possible projects that I could pursue if I were to join. We'd had some previous discussions on the phone and over e-mail so it was not hard to reach an agreement.

    Interview Details

    Graduate Students, do not go and seek Research Assistantship position in CESaC - Center for Energy and Control Systems. 90% of students there never graduate. Even if you find yourself already in the program, please opt out before you take thesis. The RA being offered by the director is more like slavery work. A word is enough for the wise.

    Interview Questions
    • You find yourself doing what the director is suppose to be doing and somehow prolong your graduation.   Answer Question
