Interview

Apply online and get results upon the decision of responsible professor. There is mostly no interview as professors know their students and having scored high on the same course earlier is the main requisite for becoming a teaching assistant.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Groningen) in Apr 2015

Interview

Procedure was weinig transparant. Vooraf moesten we vragen om collegebezoek voor een redelijk oordeel. Evaluatie hiervan was waardeloos en ging amper op didactiek in. Tevens was ons verteld dat de vacature intern was, bleek later toch per ongeluk extern te zijn uitgezet (en is er ook iemand van buitenaf aangenomen). Er werd niet gestreefd naar een zo hoog mogelijke mate van objectiviteit tijdens de procedure.

Interview

It is better to start privately contacting a professor whose research work we are interested in. Even better, if a student of the university of Groningen, take one or more courses thought by her/him, perform a small research project or a thesis. Usually then, the first step is to give a presentation about the most important research achievements obtained during the studies. Depending whether we are applying for an open position or a free position with research proposal, we need to be prepared about the subject and ready to ask relevant questions, or give a short presentation of our research proposal. Having external fundings is more than welcome, but the university also hires PhD students as employees, providing wage and benefits.

Interview Questions
  • Your research proposal seems quite fancy, involving probably mathematical methods you have not encountered before. What will you do in case you don't know how to proceed?
