Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview

Postdoctoral Research Associate
Ames, IA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Iowa State University in November 2012.

Interview Details – I sent my cover letter about the postdoc position. And after I got email back from my PI, I had a conference call with my PI. My PI asked me my background and my experiences in detail. After then, my PI introduced what this position was supposed to do in the current project. My PI asked me again about my feeling and how I could do this. So I think I answered quiet well.
