This Science Careers article will teach you how you can use the interview as a tool to learn more about the company or organization to which you're applying.

Interviews are a two-way process. Use yours as a whittling tool to make sure the position you're applying for is the best option available.

From the article: "Although job interviews are under the control of the employer, information and evaluation is a two-way process. The savvy job candidate is not only being interviewed but is interviewing the company. Like the interviewer, you, the interviewee, should be on the watch for telltale signs that the job, and the organization, may not be such a good opportunity after all. There's only one thing worse than losing out on a great job opportunity, and that's accepting a job that turns out to be nightmare!"
