Former Student Researcher/Inter at Columbia University Medical Center
almost 2 years ago
I interviewed with a PI at CUMC Dept. of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics. It was a Skype interview that lasted about 1 hour. It was mainly going over the group's research work, so I would highly recommend reading the research group's recent publications (about 3-5). Come equipped with questions! My interviewer really appreciated that I had read his previous work and came ready with questions. It made the conversation more interactive. The interviewer then asked about my relevant experiences (in terms of computational research). By the end of the interview, they had confirmed me as an intern.
