    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Baylor College of Medicine.

    Interview

    The hiring process for a postdoc is pretty different from any other industry since it's really a match up between the PI and the postdoc with the logistics (i.e., hiring) coming later. BCM made everything unnecessarily difficult. I'm not sure if this was because of the PI (very flighty) or the school (it was like they manufactured red tape), but things were really slow and then they'd give me a deadline of something like 24hrs to get back to them. I think the thing that frustrated me the most was that no one would tell me anything! I didn't even have an offer in writing until I demanded it two weeks before my start date. How can the expect a person to start a job without a full description of salary, benefits, etc?! Ridiculous.

    Interview Questions

    • I didn't have a formal interview, just a meet and greet with the PI, so I wasn't asked any particular questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary. Don't let anyone tell you that the NIH limit is set in stone. If they want you, they will find you money. Pay for postdocs is pitiful and most PIs know we could make more money elsewhere. It's part of the training process, but we deserve to be compensated.
