    I worked at WSU before as a graduate student, and my postdoctoral research was somehow related to the work I have done before, so my interview was not very hard and the whole process was short.

    The application process is coordinated 100% online. Make sure your digital documentation is up to par and in PDF format for best results in submitting. Be prepared to wait. WSU is much like any higher ed institution hiring processes, which take a great deal of time. They are slow to hire but employment is stable and the benefits are great!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Washington State University.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an email to set up an interview a month later. I was interviewed by a panel. They took turns asking pretty standard questions from a list about my abilities related to the job, why I was different from other candidates etc. Despite reading questions from a list, they were very friendly. They emailed me the same day to say I was a finalist and that they were doing reference checks and a background check. I received an offer within a week.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Washington State University in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I doubt my experience will be helpful to anyone else as I got this position through faculty contacts and not through a typical application process. My interview was very informal because the faculty members were already familiar with my research. They mainly just wanted to know if I could do CGE modeling.
