    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Cambridge, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Initially, I was asked to provide a reference letter and then I was asked for an interview. The interview lasted about 2 hours, and included 30-40 minutes first with the Principal Investigator (hiring manager). Then, I was interviewed by the person I would be replacing. Lastly, I met the rest of the team and had a tour of the lab/offices.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I accepted the offer verbally to the PI. However, I was told that HR still needed to check my references and review my CV as well as do a background check, check graduation from University and last employment. So It was about 3 weeks after accepting offer that I received an official letter of employment.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a couple of months later for an interview. The interview process involved two separate site-visits. During the first visit, I met over 2 days with faculty of my current department, the head of the department, and gave a research presentation of the science I had already done. They took me to dinner and the next day I had another full day of meetings and a "chalk-talk", where I presented work that I might like to do if I came there. Approximately a month or so later, they invited me back to spend another two days talking to people, but not giving any presentations. The offer came a month or so later.

    Instructor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was comprehensive, supervisors and colleagues are involved and usually require a presentation. And the interview process was a normal one, it usually takes a whole day. I believe it is a good place for research, as this institute has so many world famous publications, but when I work here I got to know this institue do not support research well, scientists are much poorly paid comparing with the neighboring institute.
