Postdoctoral Fellow Interview

Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD).

Interview

Brief - asked about my previous research. They assumed they knew everything about me from my CV - this was a terrible assumption. They were more interested in telling me about what they do and everything I could become involved with. If I could go back, I would ask about previous post-docs (what they did, how long they were there, frequency of publication, why they left, and what they are doing now) and I wouldn't take the job without a career development plan.

Interview Questions

  • I was not asked difficult questions - explain this project, how did you do that, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation

I was offered the minimum post-doc salary. This was a 20% pay cut for me. I said I can't take a 20% pay cut and they came up to my current salary. I have received a 2% raise each year.

    The interview was very smooth. Typical presentation with faculty members asking questions about your research and possible interactions with the project at Hopkins. I will definitely will recommend to study the research going on at the specific Department where you are applying and how your current research can be connected to the research that is done in the Department.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Skype for oversee interview. You are expected to present your graduate work to the professor. After that, you will be asked some questions. Finally, you can ask questions regarding the lab etc. The whole process is not hard. For those who are good at scientific presentation, it is very easy. However, for those whose first language is not English, it will be a little bit stressful. Although the process is almost the same, the personalities of both the candidate and the professor will be a key issue for this interview.
