    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Paul Scherrer Institut (Villigen (Switzerland)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I applied through the Master's course of the University of Bern for this internship and heard back after about 2 weeks, after which I got presented with the research options and a date for an interview.

    For the interview preparation, I just looked up the professor's research record and his most recent proposals to the SNF, which is where I found a description for the offered internship responsibilities.

    Interview Questions

    • The professor asked me what I knew about the research and had me answer some questions about my CV.   1 Answer
