Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at NIH in January 2012.

Interview Details

Got called in December to interview for an announcement I applied to in October. I spoke with two people, the lady who would be my supervisor and another supervisor. They told me about the job, ask me a few questions and I asked a few questions. Got a call about a week or two later asking to set up another interview in January. That time I met with the supervisor and two Chiefs. They had a paper with behavioral interview questions on it and took turns asking questions. I got a call the next day with an offer.
