Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University College London.

Interview

I was invited to interview after application online. The interview is normal for a reserarch associate position. First a 25 minutes presentation about my previous research and then a 40 minutes interview. The audience of the presentation was friendly. There were no difficult problems. The interview process consisted of a number of questions about me, and some research questions.

Interview Questions

  • No especially difficult problems. However, there were some questions on details for example, a couple of questions about famous papers in the research area.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted via email with interview offer 3 days after submitting application. Interview scheduled two weeks later. Interview in front of panel, with 10 min presentation. After the interview, contacted later that day by email with job offer, contingent on reference checks. Formal offer made one week after interview. Not much more to say really. Don't really understand why there is a requirement for fifty words minimum? Surely what I have already written is sufficient?

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Application through online system. After a first shortlisting I was invited for a first interview (in person - but could have been via Skype if too far away) consisting of a presentation of one of my last projects, questions around two publications I was asked to read a couple of weeks before the interview day, and an attention to details test. After a second shortlisting, I was inviting for a 2-hour data analysis task to perform after a discussion with a mock collaborator.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    friend emailed me a job link he found on a listserv. I applied online; it was the standard academic application procedure. Maybe a week or two later I received an email setting up an interview for a week hence. Interviewed, and was offered the post by email half an hour after the interview was over.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    My start date was incredibly negotiable. But that was about the only negotiating. Salary was completely non-negotiable. Work schedule was whatever I wanted as long as I averaged enough hours per month.
