    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Paul Scherrer Institut in July 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was organized well. The technical stuff was rather easy but the people there seems to be more interested if you fit well in the team and there way they work.

    Expect to have some surprises on the road like: contract work usually 3 years which is not advertised in the job description and also on call duties (like one week out of 2-3 moths).
