General Discussion[]

Did anyone apply for the Cambridge opening? They usually send out rejections within two weeks (but it's been three....)

I applied and haven't heard back. How do you know they usually send out rejections within two weeks?

  • I looked at past timelines for Cambridge jobs, and they are really fast.

[Feb 20] Got rejected with email from HR (I'm wondering if HR does the initial screen or if the faculty actually look at all the applications?).
