    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at University of Michigan in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Oddly, I was hired with minimal interviewing. Many professors will not hire until they have met the prospective postdoc in person and had that person meet people in the lab. My professor offered jobs with minimal interviewing, apparently relying on other sources of information about the candidate.
