    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Twente (Enschede (Netherlands)) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Ik had me online aangemeld en kwam in contact met een professor van de betreffende groep. Hij zei dat ze in mij geïnteresseerd waren en nodigde me uit voor een interview.

    Het duurde twee dagen (maar kan ook worden geregeld in één dag). De eerste dag ontmoette ik de potentiële nieuwe collega's (promovendi, postdocs) die me een labrondleiding gaven. De volgende dag gaf ik een seminar over mijn Master thesis onderwerp en had toen nog een gesprek met een aantal professoren over het project waar in aan zou werken in het geval dat ik werd aangenomen.

    I applied online and got in touch with a Professor of the group where I applied. He said they were interested in me and invited me over for an interview.
    It took me two days (but it can also be arranged in one). The first day I met the potential new colleagues (PhD's, post-docs) who gave me a lab tour. The following day I gave a seminar about my Master thesis subject and then had a further talk with some Professors about the project I would work on in case I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Geen. Ze waren allemaal gerelateerd aan mijn Master afstudeeropdracht.   None. They were all realted to my Master thesis assignment   Answer Question
