Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in March 2016.

Interview

While staying in Memphis for 3 days, there were two sets of interviewing schedule at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The two-day schedules included a presentation, a serial meeting with two PIs, two Lab members, and core facility members, and a hospital tour. The interview was not stressful, but very informative, comfortable, and nice. After finishing the interview, I got an informal letter of my employment in a week.
