    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oregon State University (Corvallis, OR) in July 2017.

    Interview

    There was a committee of five people including one of the longstanding PhD's in the OSU Department of Chemistry, the person that manages the teaching labs, the HR person, and two younger scientists. After introductions I was given a sheet with about six or seven questions. The questions were asked in a round robin style by the committee members.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked why I thought I was a good fit for the job.   1 Answer
    • They surprised me by asking how I "foster diversity" in the workplace. I later realized it's because OSU has many international students who come to study science.   1 Answer
    • They wanted to know what i expect from a supervisor.   1 Answer
