    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at University of Illinois in July 2010.

The interview lasted an entire day but was VERY informational and and a great experience -- it involved interviewing with multiple people but I truly walked away with a great understanding of the team I would be working with and the responsibilities of the position.
