    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Stanford University.

    Interview

    Got a call within 1 week of submitting my application. Had a 45 min phone interview with the director and potential job supervisor. At the conclusion of the phone interview I was told to expect a second Skype interview the following week. I am still waiting for this and will update this as the process concludes.
