I have been working at Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation full-time (More than 5 years)
The Noble Foundation provides internal funding for PIs, it has several state of art research facilities, which are very convenient for the scientist.
It is in a small town, Ardmore, Oklahoma. Need to drive more than 100 miles to Dallas or Oklahoma city for shopping.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation in April 2015.
I got an email from HR that they've contacted my references regarding to the position. After one month they emailed and said they want to have an online interview. They gave me a date for an online video conference. the panel was composed of three and interestingly nobody from HR was present there. The entire interview took about an hour. they mainly questioned my technical skills, no behavioral interview questions were asked. The manager called me after two weeks with an offer.
