    Interview

    I applied for three positions in three different labs while I did not expect any feedback. To my utter surprise, I got interview from all three! In one lab only the lab I PI and I had online conversation for ~ 15 minutes about the research background, expections, etc. In another lab, the intervie was very structured. The PI sent me some ~10 questions beforehand and list of name of 5 lab memebers and externals who would be in the interview sessions. Members include gradute students, postdoc and PI. Following this 35 minutes interview, I was selected for an one hour 1-1 presentation and discusssio with PI. In the third land there was similar short of interview like the 2nd one and I was selected and Hired.
