    I have been working at UC Santa Barbara full-time

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for doing interdisciplinary research at UCSB. The location is also great if you like outdoors and the beach.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy tends to be inefficient in some departments .

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UC Santa Barbara.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long (3+ months). It was frustrating to hear back from people but I eventually heard back. I would encourage them to improve the speed of their interview process.
