Eliglible students and postdocs go to the Mock Job Descriptions to read descriptions and submit application.

Deadline to apply was November 11. You can apply to up to three jobs, you must submit a separate application per job. See eligibility requirements below.

Experts will review applications submitted for their mock job posting and select five applicants to participate in a mock interview time-slot. Prior to the mock interviews, the experts will review, edit, and return CV (submitted as part of the online application) to the selected candidates.

Experts and the five selected candidates will meet in a Zoom meeting.

  • Selected applicants will do a 5-minute pitch of their skills to the group.
