I spoke with the head of the lab via phone conversation. Then, was asked if I'd like to apply for my own funding (fellowship) in order for them to afford me. After receiving the funding I was asked to join the lab.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I found my job on naturejobs. I e-mailed an application and had one phone interview. After the phone interview all correspondence was through e-mail. Upon arrival and the workplace I was asked to give a presentation to the lab on my previous research. I was already hired so this was informal. I have since learned that this occurs before hiring in most cases.

    Interview Questions

    • None, the interview was very straight forward. I was asked about my past research and lab experience.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, my salary was based on an NOH payscale for people with my level of experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in January 2008.

    Interview

    It was a standard presentation for such positions in very nice atmosphere. 45 minutes scientific talk in front of the research group and 1:1 discussion with PI about research projects, possibilities at UW for collaborations, expectations, work time (which is idealistic for such a position, as it always exceeds), help trough techs etc. Very collaborative atmosphere, unfortunaely only talked to PI and not to any other institutional professors

    Negotiation

    fair and easy, according to NIH salary
