    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at SRI International.

    Interview Details

    The process was very smooth and team-oriented. I could tell that much attention was paid to transparency, efficiency, and communication with me as a prospective employee. As part of the in-person interview, I was provided with a short walking tour of the campus, which helped me to get a sense of the work environment and culture outside of the structured interview setting.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at SRI International.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty typical for a post-doc position. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager followed by an onsite interview. The onsite interview consisted of meeting with an HR representative the asked pretty typical "behaviorial" type questions, meetings with various group members, and a presentation given by me about my graduate work. The interview process was pretty standard. I also received a tour of the facilities and campus.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were pretty standard- most people just wanted to know about my previous research.   Answer Question
