Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Washington.
Interview Details – 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 Question – None, the interview was very straight forward. I was asked about my past research and lab experience. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, my salary was based on an NOH payscale for people with my level of experience
