Interview Details – 1. Application online
2. 90 min phone interview, all about research details

The on-site interview was tough. Firstly did a technical presentation for 1 hr. Then group interview by 10 scientists, asking difficult questions. Then individual interview by some scientists.
Interview Question – Any details in the presentation can be asked and even if it is nothing related to what you do. Probably just a technical term and you need to know deeply. Answer Question

Interview Details – I was initially contacted by phone by an HR representative who described the company and asked simple questions about my background. Then, they flew me out to their office about a week later. I was given presentation of company. My impression was that the employees seem to have opportunity to travel a lot. A panel of 3 interviewed me, questions primarily behavioral, e.g. how do you manage your time? what is your most difficult/favorite class? etc. Overall, they were very nice and made me feel comfortable.
