    Assistant Professor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Calgary (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    Pretty typical for a faculty position. Gave a couple of talks, did an interview with a search committee and with the associate Dean. In my case this interview predates the present University Culture which is stronger, more ambitious and more selective. In the future I believe the potential of a candidate to fit with University priorities will be a factor in Job hires.

    Interview Questions

    • Where I saw myself fitting in the department.
      What sort of research program I would build.
      Whether I saw potential for research with industry.
