Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Simon Fraser University in June 2013.

Interview Details – I contacted him about writing a research grant together to obtain funding for a new project. We met and I presented the research plan on a powerpoint and he went through each slide to ask about details. I was given a tour of the lab and met future coworkers who were very friendly. We applied for a grant which was approved and we started the work.

Interview Question – The whole process was more of a discussion than deliberate questioning, so, there was no difficult question per se.   Answer Question

Lecturer Interview

Burnaby, BC (Canada)

The process took a day - interviewed at Simon Fraser University in September 2007.

Interview Details – I applied for the position after seeing a posting on a website. I applied for the position by emailing my coverletter and CV to the contact person. I received a telephone call from the contact person in approximately 2 weeks, which was about 8 weeks before the start date of the job. I met with the contact and had a very pleasent conversation regarding my background. I was shown the size of the lab I will be a part of.

Interview Question – Why have I decided not to pursue research and instead chose just teaching.   Answer Question
