Post Doctoral Fellow Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stanford University (Stanford, CA) in April 2015.

Interview

Applied to the Professor directly. I followed up via email on the application. In response, I was asked for a convenient date and time for Skype and to ask PhD supervisor to email recommendation letter. Skype interview lasted about 1.5 hours. After the interview he said he has to interview a few more candidates and then would get back to me. A week later, I was asked to send 2 more reference letters and was asked if I planned to visit the US anytime soon (I was abroad at time of interview). Since I couldn't be present in person, I was asked for a final round of telephonic interview. The next day I received unofficial email confirming my position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was awesome, very low pressure, but time intensive in a way that allowed me to fully assess the program, and them to fully assess my qualifications. After submitting the application I had a phone interview within about a week, and then I was flown out for a 1:1, which occurred with three faculty members, and within about a month of that 1:1, I was given an offer.
