    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern University.

    Interview

    I applied on the NW website and then was contacted by email from the PI about 2.5 weeks later. We setup a 30min zoom call with the post-docs from the lab. They were very friendly, asked about my career goals and research experience.
