I have been working at University of Vermont full-time (More than 3 years)
good environment, calm and quite place for doing research
Not a big networking opportunities, limited options for career building
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Vermont (New York, NY).
Just like normal academic interview. Since it's a phd postion application, I contacted my potential advisor directly. During the screen phone interview, we talked about my research and my potential advisor's research projects. A few academic questions were asked to evaluate my research background.
