    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Cancer Institute (Bethesda, MD) in December 2014.

    Interview

    After being contacted about the position and conducting a phone interview I was offered an on-site interview. I interviewed at 3 different labs within the NIH and all paid for my travel expenses to conduct on-site interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • You are required to give an hour long powerpoint presentation about your thesis work. After that you are asked a good number of questions of your past work and where it could lead you in the future. PIs also go over their work and try to determine where you might fit in.   1 Answer
