    I have been working at NIH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training resources and enjoy the time to talk and collaborate with many excellent scientists. You will also have a great chance to attend various seminars and get the most updated perspectives in your field.

    Cons

    They don't authorize diploma, so there's not many graduate students here. But I think the graduate students are very important to the science progression. I hope the starting or young future scientists could also enjoy this good training resources in NIH.

    Advice to Management

    The very senior PI should leave more chance to the junior scientists and be willing to retire in time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NIH (Durham, NC) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I exchanged emails for over a month with the Principal Investigator before the phone interview. In the emails, he inquired into my personal qualities extensively to determine my ability to stand up for myself, as he felt that the atmosphere of intellectual debate at the institute might be overwhelming to some. He sent me several journal articles before the phone interview and then questioned me about my understanding of their content in the interview, as well as my intentions for my future in science.
