Interview Details – The personnel were friendly and asked questions about my history and my interests, then asked specific questions relating to the post, and then asked when I can start the job. The interview process was rather more friendly than I thought, and then afterwards had a chance to view the labs with a friendly postdoc who also discussed how it would be to live in the area and something about the culture at work. Overall friendly people, and good culture of integrated work and personal development.

Interview Details – When I arrived, I had a 1:1 meeting straightaway with the lab head for 1 1/2 hrs, talking about my previous experience and my skills. I then had lunch with all the lab colleagues so that I could get to know them and feel the lab dynamics. I then gave a half-hour presentation about my PhD work, and a ten-minute Q&A session. Then, I had another 1:1 meeting with the lab head discussing about my PhD work, and the potential postdoc project. I then have three half-hour meeting with three lab members where they informed about their current research project. During this time, I also had the chance of investigating what the working environment was like in the lab in general.
