Research Fellow Interview

Research Fellow

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Nanyang Technological University in August 2011.

Interview Details – I was fairly easy. The professor already wanted to hire me before the interview so he only asked me briefly about my experiences and all the information he needed to fill out his interview form. After that, I was offered the job in the next few days. The whole hiring process is pretty simple and efficient.

Negotiation Details – The salary depends on the project's funding. The university also set a minimum barrier. There is not much you can negotiate as the funding is normally very tight.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Nanyang Technological University in February 2010.

Interview Details – My previous boss recommended me to my current boss (both are colleagues), so I got the interview. The interview process itself was straightforward. I described my expertise and they matched with the requirements of the position. There was not much negotiations on the benefits, since the salary was from a research fund (hence fixed and limited amount of money allocated).
