    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Imperial College London.

    Interview

    Wrote grant application for the European commission, no interview questions. Imperial does provide good examples of previously succesful applications. The process for the commission takes about 3.5 months, then it takes another couple of months to finish the administrational process. The deadline is usually mid August.

    Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I proceeded to this role directly after I finished my Phd degree in Imperial College. No interview required. I think my research work and capability have been recognized during the 4 years' time. And it is easier to proceed to a postdoctoral research if you have obtained your degree under the same supervisor.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial College London (London, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I emailed one of the UROP listings my department had publicized. That placement was already taken by the time I had gotten to it but the academic I emailed pointed me towards other academics in the same area. So I emailed another one and set a meeting. We had a chat over why I wanted to do a UROP, my academic results and my research interests. Then he gave me a research paper to read and understand, and 2 weeks later asked me to explain it as a sort of test.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were particularly hard or stood out. Most of it was just explaining the research paper and talking about my interest.   Answer Question
