Postdoctoral Research Fellow Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, MN
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) in April 2016.

Interview

Two phone interviews. One with primary supervisor on the research project the other with the department chair. Scheduled interviews with department admin. assistant. Each interview was 20-30 minutes in length. They called me, but for the second interview the call did not come through. He retried 5 minutes later and it came through. He did not seem put-off by the first glitch. Very friendly interiews. Department chair asked about skills, qualifications, personality questions. Primary supervisor allowed reverse questions about the project, chance to demonstrate my research into his project.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mayo Clinic.

    I was immediately contacted for an interview with an option for Skype or onsite visit. I was assured reimbursement for it as well. The recruiter was from my university itself so it was a kind of comfort relating to him. I am looking forward to get an offer from them.

    Initially sent a letter of inquiry directly to the principle investigator I wished to work with. That followed by a response from them, a phone interview that was very informal. I was flown out for presentations and that day offered a position.
