    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Purdue University in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    After several phone calls, emails, an in-person interview conducted by two people within the office, and a seperate in-person from HR the interview process was complete. It was a long interview process, but about what you would expect from a big ten school. There was a lot of red tape you had to go through to actually apply for the job, but again all expected. they did have questions already prepared from HR that they were required to ask each candidate. I felt the interview was pretty formal overall.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for the REU through the NSF website. A few weeks later, I received an email asking to arrange the phone conversation. The program director told me more about the program and answered my questions. I think she decided to take me before the phone call. Then she arranged a call between me and my PIs where we discussed our mutual research interests.
