    It was a two-day interview at two different locations. I first gave a talk, then I was 1:1 interviewed with 7-8 people. I had also a few phone interviews. It was more of behavioral questions than technical questions. Also some questions of my CV: the places I've worked and the projects I did there.

    I had an initial 10 minutes phone screening, where the person interviewing me mostly checked again my academic credentials. Two weeks later I went for the on site interview. I gave a 1 hour long presentation about the research I did during my master degree, which was followed by 3 group interviews with various research teams. The group interviews mainly consisted in giving them more details about the skills listed in my cv without getting too technical.

    Interview

    Initial communications via email. Phone interview was setup in one week

The 1:1 consisted of a full day interview with 5 people and a presentation of my research to the rest of the group. The questions were targetted as the people tried to get an understanding of my fit within the group, ability to handle complex questions, level of technical understanding and prowess
