    Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University of Rochester (Rochester, NY (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The position at LLE was advertised for a grant with definite research objective. I think I am pretty capable and I applied online. It took 2 months to get through the DOE censorship. I was invited to an on-site interview. The interview was okay. The interviewer promised to send decision in two weeks. However, 2 weeks past, no news. I waited for about 1 month and finally know that they are considering another candidate. To my surprise, they did not tell me anything until I asked.
    As it is consistently predicted, I was not told anything until the other candidate accepted the offer. In the end, they selected the person based on the need of so-called "pragmatic" research, which is not as advertised. Amazing!
     Anyway, the whole process took about 4+ months and it is a torture.
    Be aware of the internal politics and good luck!
