    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Rice University (Houston, TX) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process was smooth. It includes meeting with lab members, supervisor, discussing the proposed project that you work on etc. We had a lunch with lab members and dinner. I presented my past research. Then I needed to wait couple more weeks to hear from the faculty who interviewed me. I negotiated the salary but it was fixed and nothing has changed from the initial offer.
