    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UMBC.

    Interview

    two phone interviews, followed by on-site interview with a powerpoint presentation of previous graduate work. About a 30 minute presentation followed by open questions with about 30 people in the audience including all principal investigators. The questions varied from the content of my presentation to questions on how I believe my expertise may be applicable to the proposed project.
