I applied online. I interviewed at Harvard University

Interview

Interview was very straightforward - I've held two roles at Harvard. No trick questions, very pleasant experience with HR. Come prepared, but all in all it's a simple conversation. In both of my experiences it was quite fast too, they're very transparent and won't keep you waiting for a month

I interviewed at Harvard University

Interview

It was great. Very nice to be talking to the university. I liked it and would go back for more! But, I need to write 30 words. So maybe I didn't like it after all.

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Harvard University (Boston, MA)

Interview

Many rounds of interviews but are fairly straightforward. They are looking for experience. Connect all answers to Harvard's core values. The first round is with HR, and then most likely you will be meeting with the team you will work with. Final two interviews are with your direct reporting manager and the director.

Interview

Classic HR interview. Very kind interviewer. Most difficult question was, if I had ever experience on teaching a diverse audience coming from different backgrounds. Proceeded to next round which was on describing my CV. Was asked about my previous scientific computing projects.

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Harvard University (Boston, MA) in May 2021

Interview

Only one lab had 4 rounds of interviews, plus spend a whole day in the lab. Every lab is different, but for the most part, other labs had only 30-60min interviews/conversations. Make sure you have basic communication skills and collect some experience prior to applying. Some experience of at least 1-2 lab techniques is crucial to getting your food on the door.
