    Post Doctoral Research Worker Institute of Psychology Iop Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at King's College London in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    offered in person interview
    panel of 5 including professor and 1x person I would have been likely working with and 3x other researchers
    professor and likely colleague showed no interest, infact latter barely made eye contact even when talking about and to them. Interview a very rushed 20ish min. had to chase up outcome even though was told would be told same day or next. feedback took forever. when eventually received I was told I was rejected due to another candidate having experience of x. I was never even asked about x and actually could have answered questions on that subject. to be fair to the other 3 panelists they were professional and engaged well in conversation. so you may mostakenly think I am bitter as I didnt get the job... well I have had 2-3 interviews around the same time with UCL london, 2-3 at imperial college and 1x at Manchester and few others and had an excellent interview experience and high praise in feedbacks. One professor and PI from UCL rang me in person to say I didnt get job but they really liked me and I was strong candidate but another jus had 1x skill they needed. I felt discriminated by King's panel and especially disappointed at the obvious lack of interest and rush to get me out of there.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at King's College London in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I would have to say it was an alright interview, but a little too intense for a research job. It consisted of a 30 minute computer competency test in which someone was there in the room timing you and watching you as you completed tasks from this paper that were very confusing. Then, I had to take another test in front of the interview panel directly after showing my phone competency skills to deal with participants. A major pain for the fact that it was research related. I think I was thrown off for the rest of the interview because of all the tests. I think I did well but I didn't get the job after all. I already had a job for the University of London and the interview was quick and painless. This interview was just more intense than it needed to be. My advice is to NOT apply for the Institute of Psychiatry unless you want some people who are too serious about their jobs.

    Interview Questions
    • Essentially I had to describe what I would do EN VIVO (part of the telephone test/question) about what I would do if a participant responded negatively to a question or did not what to do it and how would you persuade them without pressure.   Answer Question
