    Research Assistant Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at University of Alberta.

    Interview

    Some professors and research groups maintain positions for research assistants and will recruit them from the general student population, but this is atypical. Most positions are created for specific candidates. The best strategy is to attend as an undergraduate student, get good grades, have good ideas, and talk to professors about opportunities.
