    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at George Mason University (Fairfax, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    There was no interview, I was hired out of necessity. The department is under staffed and under funded, however this is due to the tenured faculty or the majority of them not having any current funding. So GTA stipends are paid by the college of science rather than by the department which is more of the norm.
