    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Memorial Sloan Kettering (New York, NY) in Jan 2021


    I applied to the position through the website. In January I received a few interview requests from a different labs that were interested in me. The interviews were conducted through zoom for either 30 minutes or an hour with the PI or someone in charge of the lab. One of the lab was interested in hiring me and I was required to do a reference check. After that the offer was delivered very quickly. Everyone was really nice and welcoming. In general it’s relaxed interview process.

    Tell me about yourself. What research have you done; what was the method, the question, and the result? What do you wanna do in the near future?
