Interview Details

Employer (Prof) would ask you about your inclinations and willingness to work past office hours (as expected for research related work). The prof would then describe his/her current works and the findings and he/she would ask you few questions on how would you be able to help out in the lab. They would bring you to meet their lab members and would allow you to have a small chat with them and let you have interactions with them.

    Schedule a meeting with the professor. Talk with him during the meeting about your background. Sometimes he will ask for your transcript and determine whether you are suitable for the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at National University of Singapore.

    Interview Details

    I saw the opening on the institute's website. The next day I sent out the email, they contacted me, which is faster than I expected. They arranged a phone interview the next day for my personal details.

    The real face-to-face interview was the week after. I met the professor who needed the assistant. It was quite casual. We sat in his office on the couch and he asked several questions, like my experience, my career plan, etc. The whole interview lasted for about 40 minutes. Then he told me that I could go out to the office to mingle with people working in the office, which I didn't because they seemed busy.

    A week later, I sent a very polite email to the professor to thank him to give me the interview opportunity. On the same day, they sent me an email and told me that they decide to give me the job offer!

    (But it does take them long to get an EP for foreign employees)
