    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First you meet with HR about your application and they ask you about your research experience, when you would be available to start working etc. Then you meet with lab members to get a sense of how the lab runs and what projects you would potentially be working on/ what your day to day would look like. Then it's back to HR for additional follow up.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied onlineto a couple of open positions. Was invited to interview with two different labs. Each lasting about an hour. One lab I met only with the fellow Research Assistants so it was very low key, while the other lab I met with multiple post docs, all separately, so had to repeat a lot of the same info. HR is super pleasant and helpful the entire time.
