Research Fellow Interview

Research Fellow
Stanford, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Stanford University in November 2009.

Interview Details – It is kind of weird of Stanford's policy of recruiting new hires. Typically you can only get the Stanford offer by showing you have another offer at another institute. Stanford does not want to be the first to give you an offer, it always waits for other institute to give you the offer first, and then matches with a similar offer.

Interview Question – Which paper you regard the most successful one in your publications?   Answer Question
