    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Institute of Child Health and Development (Bethesda, MD) in January 2015.

    Interview

    This is going to be highly dependant on the hiring scientist. What I am describing is my experience: My hiring scientist ascertained whether I have sufficient motivation to pursue an independent scientific research; whether I have strong ethics in conducting scientific research; whether I aspire for a high-risk ambitious project, and not settle for low-hanging fruits.

    Additionally, you would also need to make a presentation of past research experience and your plan for future research.

    You would also require good references from your previous mentors.
