I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford University in July 2017.

Overall, it was a very relaxed interview. I interviewed via Skype with the Research Coordinator I would be working with. We discussed my previous experience, why I was interested in the lab, and was given time for my own questions at the end.

    Interview

    I don't really remember the interview -- it was brief. I met with a couple people in the lab and they asked about my experience and interests. Most people at Stanford get hired because they know someone or go to school there. That was my experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Stanford University.

    Interview

    The interview process took a long time, almost two months, had to meet three times with two different heads. The interviews were mixed, both easy and difficult due to the different questions different people have. Other colleagues did not receive similar questions, so trying to guess what is consistently asked to all interviewees is difficult.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I received an email from the professor I was going to work for and we set up a time for me to meet her in her office. The interview was all over the place - she went back and forth between topics, interrupted you mid-sentence to ask you to finish the sentence 10 minutes later, asked me very specific questions that were only tangentially relevant to the job (like the name of my introductory statistics professor from a few years prior), etc.
