No room to grow , don't expect to be rich at government salaries
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NIDDK.
Responded to NatureJobs advert with CV, cover letter and references.
Once references were checked, I was invited for interview. Cost of travel were reimbursed. Interview took 1 day to meet all lab members and to give a 45 minute seminar about my work. Meal with PI that evening and was offerred the job. I decided in 2 weeks. The visa took 3 months to sort out though ... so slow.
No real negotiation. I just accepted the offer (which almost doubled my PhD salary).
