    Recommends

    I have been working at US Naval Research Laboratory full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment for developing your research skills and networking for better jobs after your postdoc is complete

    Cons

    The government is a painfully slow entity to work with. It can take several months to get any research equipment ordered.

    Advice to Management

    Have Congress pass laws making it easier for their National Labs to Operate without a lot of bureaucratic rules.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at US Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, DC (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was basically a repeat of my PhD defense without the added stress of trying to get the PhD. The interview process was mostly assessing if I'd fit in with the group.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you fit in this group? How can you contribute to this group? What are your long term goals (trying to see if you want to pursue academia or national lab research)?   Answer Question
