I first submitted my CV to the professor who wanted to recruit postdocs. Then we scheduled a discussion via Skype. The discussion was pleasant. I almost knew I would get the offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    I had a detailed academic CV along with a research statement. We got a perfect match between me and the research group. I had only one phone interview, enough generic. There were 15 candidates for this position. They didn't ask for any recommendation letters.

    Interview

    Getting a position as a postdoc is fairly straightforward; find a professor who's research interests you, contact them about your interest and give info on your background, and ask if they have a position available. At that point they will say, "I don't have funding right now" or they will likely ask for references.

    Interview Questions
