    I interviewed through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Toronto in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    I initially emailed the department and asked if they were looking for postdoctoral fellows. Within a couple of days, I got an email from a professor and came in for an interview. The questions were relatively easy to answer however I felt it was very difficult to get any information about the work environment. I came back for a second meeting and was offerred the job.
