    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at New York Academy of Sciences (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The application will require a CV, cover letter and a few ideas for potential conferences, both in your area of expertise and from another scientific field (to show that you can come up to speed with new areas). The panel may consist of 3-5 people, both from your future dept as well as a parallel dept. The panelists will tell you about their background and how they came to the Academy, then will ask a series of unscripted questions about your experience writing grant applications, running events, coming up to speed with new areas of science, and dealing with high-profile scientific leaders.

    Interview Questions

    • What kind of environment do you need to be successful? How would you measure success in this program? Can you tell us about any occasion of which you have had to come up to speed with a field of science outside your own? What grant applications have you written and been successful in (NIH funding success is particularly valued)?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It's possible to negotiation over benefits. I have seen several examples of people being offered a position (e.g. Director of X) then, once the job offer was made, arguing their own worth and being appointed as 'Executive Director of X').
