    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY).

    Interview

    There was no formal interview. Just a chat with the Associate Dean. You will get an offer sometime late May and mid June, regardless of how early you contact. If you are graduating from RPI with a PhD and unsure of your job search process, this is a good position to hangout for a while.
