    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of British Columbia.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a panel of 3 scientist. I was asked a series of technical questions related to the research project. I was asked to give a detailed explanation of PCR, qPCR etc.. The usual behavioral questions were also brought up...give an example of a challenge you overcame etc.. Fairly easy overall.
