Assistant Professor Interview

Assistant Professor
Ames, IA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Iowa State University in April 2008.

Interview Details – Phone interview with a faculty member and then flown in for two days of interviews. The process is pretty standard: meet with faculty both days and give an hour-long seminar to the faculty and graduate students.

Interview Question – Faculty interviews are all about making impressions with the current faculty and convincing them you are a good fit for the department. If you have a hot research area, that's a huge plus.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was more about start up package. I essentially got $350,000 to start up my lab.
