    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.

    Interview

    none in my field was at the interview and the management there did everything they could to put down my work and my obvious achievement. It was clear that none read the application material but still kept on being inappropriate and rude and even pretending to know how a field that was not theirs worked. The most inappropriate and rude people I have so far met in the profession.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Groningen (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    Apply online and get results upon the decision of responsible professor. There is mostly no interview as professors know their students and having scored high on the same course earlier is the main requisite for becoming a teaching assistant.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Groningen (Netherlands)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    It is better to start privately contacting a professor whose research work we are interested in. Even better, if a student of the university of Groningen, take one or more courses thought by her/him, perform a small research project or a thesis. Usually then, the first step is to give a presentation about the most important research achievements obtained during the studies. Depending whether we are applying for an open position or a free position with research proposal, we need to be prepared about the subject and ready to ask relevant questions, or give a short presentation of our research proposal. Having external fundings is more than welcome, but the university also hires PhD students as employees, providing wage and benefits.

    • Your research proposal seems quite fancy, involving probably mathematical methods you have not encountered before. What will you do in case you don't know how to proceed?   1 Answer
