    Interview

    The interview for research position really completely depends on the PI (principal investigator) that you're applying for. He/she has the complete freedom and choice for the interview style. In my case, it's just a very casual talk on the laboratory together with a laboratory tour to gauge the suitability for both sides.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    There was not a vacancy when I applied. But I contacted the department I was interested in and suggested that I work part-time for them. I simply met up for a semi-casual interview with the Principal Investigator and also met with the team after wards. It was semi-casual and the other interviewee wore casual attire ( jeans and t-shirt) seems like research positions may be quite lenient.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my past experience. Interest in the department studies. Keen to do outdoor work, flexibility of weekends.   Answer Question

    Basically I was asked about my backgrounds, specially my academic backgrounds. Questions are like where do I from, what schools did I attend, what kinds of work experience do I have (intern or part time). It is more like a talk, no need to prepare, and no need to print out the CV and stuff. The professor is very very nice. And he told me to do a trial run, if I can pass, I will get the offer.
