Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at D. E. Shaw Research (New York, NY) in August 2009.

Interview

Two phone interviews, one which covered general background, and one which had some easy physics/CS questions to answer. After the phone interviews I went to NY for an on site interview which consisted of a series of one on ones with various staff members. We discussed my background, prior research experience, and then had a series of analysis/math/CS problems to solve.
