    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the interviewers. They sounded very nice and the overall call took about an hour. They asked me to make an introduction about myself. Then asked me what I did in my dissertation and some questions related to my resume. I received the invitation for on-site but didn't do the on-site yet. Since I have to provide the result... so I will select what I expected. Hope I can get it,
