    Full tuition, stipend, great medical school and university


    The contract says ~30 hours per week but I worked well beyond that for my principal investigator

    Advice to Management

    Give the student researchers more wiggle room and freedom. In many cases better research would come out of the situation

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at University of Pittsburgh in January 2015.


    Applied online, heard back three weeks later via email to schedule a phone interview with three people. The usual questions, talked about job-specific software skills, public outreach, my previous work and research experience. They seemed as if they knew my application materials pretty well and seemed interested in doing an in-person interview. They said they would contact me in the next week about doing one, never did, and never responded to my follow-up emails. I saw a somewhat similar position posted a month later (possibly putting half the job responsibilities to someone else and increasing the technical aspects of the work) and think it's possible they rewrote the job. I guess that was too hard to tell a candidate who was very interested in the position?
