    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NIH (Bethesda, MD) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard for such an academic/research institute: Phone call with manager for 15-30 minutes. It was basically an introduction of what I did during my PhD and they explained to me what their branch does. Then they flew me in and I gave a presentation to the whole branch. Then I had a group meeting with my manager and his colleagues.

    Typically you'll go through one or two days of interviews. You will probably have to give a presentation about your current research. The hiring process may take a little while if they are interviewing more than one candidate.

    Negotiation

    Since salaries and benefits are set by NIH guidelines there is not much room, if any, to negotiate.
