    I was working for Imperial for 7years, they wouldn't let me have my Phd exam unless i stayed another year as a research associate to do the dirty job, so i had to apply. No interview, no nothing. The job had to be advertised and i got it with my BLANK application! Stay away from Imperial, (see my post for further detail). Stay away from Imperial, it's the most corrupt environment i've ever seen!
