Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at MIT in January 2014.

Interview Details

I initially planned to take a course at MIT, but upon persistence, continued communication and great performance, I was able to get paid for conducting research immediately. I was not technically "interviewed"; it was rather a 6 month long process of staying in touch with and collaborating with (and doing free work for) my desired lab.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at MIT in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very specific to department and lab. Mine involved talking to all principal investigators regardless of if I would work on projects with them. Slow hiring process - IT has to interview a certain number of people even if they want you.
