    Pros

    Nice environment for skills development, large core facility, and collaborative institution.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN).

    Interview

    Interviewed by phone and then days later I was interviewed in person. I was asked a series of questions related to not Windows and Mac platforms. I was then told the job was on hold for 2-3 weeks but only after the I terview was over. This is a terrible way to recruit talent.
