    The process took a dayinterviewed at Stanford University in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    It is a phone interview. The PI first told me that he might be have a opening in couple of months so he is interviewing. He gave me updated info about his research, talked about how many people in his group, what activities (meetings etc) and collaborators are. The the PI asked me about why I want to join the lab, career goal, visa status, publications. It went well. The things is that they are not sure when the space will open. He told me once he has better idea he will arrange a visit. It's about 45min. Overall the PI was very nice, I really hope his current postdoc find a job and leave soon!
