I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) in February 2011.
Arrived from Spain. The professor didn't pay for the airfare to the US; instead, just paid from NYC to Nashville. She also did not pay relocation costs. On the day of the interview, I gave a seminar to the department. Then, met with several professors to talk about my project. In the evening, my soon-to-be boss took me out drinking....she ended up drunk and I had to carry her home.
- To explain the specifics of my research project more as to how it relates to differentiation and proliferation. Answer Question
There was no negotiation. The university uses a standard NIH payscale for postdocs which begins with a base salary and then increases with each year of prior postdoc experience.
