    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Van Andel Research Institute (Grand Rapids, MI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    the applicant is required to present a seminar when picked as a candidate. before or after the seminar, the candidate needs to person-to-person meet with all the people in the group or lab. the supervisor may ask you questions about your previous employment, and why you want apply for this position. it is pretty strait forward.
