    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cardiff University in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Shortly after the closing date I've got an interview invitation that included travel expenses (always a plus). The interview was with a pannel of three people including an admin person and two scientist one of them the programme leader. The interview was very relaxed and easy, no tough questions, they were more interested in an informal chat and get to know you than anything else.
    Some examples:
    1. Talk a bit about your CV and how do you think your experience fits with the position
    2. Example of a difficult situation that involved team work, how did you contributed...
    3. What my co-workers will say about me?
    4. Computing skills specialy about excel. They ask me about what excel macros are.
    5. What keeps me motivated?
    6. What do you know about the human papiloma virus?
    7. Career plans and objectives
    8. Explain what is your understanding of the project you will be involved in
    8. Reasons for applying for the job. They challenge my reasons for applying to the job asking me repeatdely about routinary work.
    9. Hobbies

    Very predecible questions
