alwayscaffeinated Posted March 25, 2017 Share Posted March 25, 2017 I often hear that it's good for interviewees to also have their own questions to ask in order to show that they're interested and truly invested time researching the program/position, etc... This might sound dumb, but what kind of questions are appropriate to ask? I guess I'm just afraid of asking the wrong question and coming across as ignorant. Personally I'm in the process of hunting and applying for full-time research positions, and the only question I can think of asking is if there are opportunities to publish/present while working at X Lab. What other questions can an applicant/interviewee ask without looking ignorant and show that they're truly interested in the position they're applying to? What kind of questions are appropriate to ask a current lab manager? Is it okay to ask things like, "Did you already have similar research interests to the lab when you started working there? Did working at this lab help you focus your own research interests for graduate school?" or is that weirdly too personal and invasive? Maybe I'm just overthinking things.
