    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in October 2015.

    I already knew the professor before hand. I emailed him and asked for the position. I had gotten an A in the course so I tried out the positon. After trying the position I asked for more times that I could come and help out. So there wasn't really an interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

    Interview

    Contacted the posting professor via exjobb kth website. However the professor did not think my background (electronics) matched that topic about robots (automation). He made a recommendation about another topic and arranged for an interview.
    The process went through the contents of the topic. Was asked about my understanding and experiences of related concepts specifically. Went through academic background and related courses.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing much difficult. Though slightly unexpected was that my transcripts were looked into carefully. Was asked about why the scores were high/low and continued with details in the courses.   Answer Question

    I met with my (to be) supervisor and we have a hour long interview about the position. It was very informal and cordial. I spoke about my background and why I was qualified for the position.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in March 2008.

    Interview

    - Short phone interview with assistant professor: on why KTH, why research etc etc
    -1:1 interview with professor in question focused on academic track record and future ideas. No biggy.
    Was offered o participate in a group meeting the same day, and was asked to present a summary of the findings of my M.Sc thesis (5-10 min). People were really relaxed (did not expect anything else), listened and asked follow up questions, more to be nice than to test skills. Aside from detailed tech-questions from faculty on specific details, it was an easy interview and a great experience.

    Interview Questions

    • What motivates you?   Answer Question
    • How would you define stress, and given this definition, what is your relationship(funny phrasing) to stress. How do you handle it?   Answer Question
