I have been working at Eastern Virginia Medical School full-time (More than 3 years)
Coworkers, colleagues and every other non-scientific professionals in the school are very welcoming. It is an environment where learning and collaborating is priority.
As with any Academia position it can be hard to advance/move up your career. It is excellent for starting young scientists or already well-established PIs.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA) in December 2017.
They called me 2 months after I applied which was in September. I had forgotten that I even applied until they called me the week after thanksgiving that Wednesday for an interview friday. I interviewed with 2 managers. It was short.. About 15 mins literally. I was told i would get a call later that day or by noon Monday. They finally called around 3pm today..12/4.. Was offered the position. Start date is 12/18.. So i now have to take an occupational health physical and urine screen. Salary is decent..A little mlre than what i thought. I am just happy to be working before Christmas because i have been out of work since September.
