    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview more elaborated on the duties of the job rather than evaluating the applicant. Only question that was asked was time availability. Students were brought in groups to tour the lab. The hiring manager hired individuals based on the application they submitted online.
