    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Bath.

    Interview Details

    Initially you have to fill a form that they have on their website. They have a very detailed description of the project and you have to answer specific questions as how your experience matches their requirements. You also have to provide your list of publications and contacts for references.

    If invited to the interview you are invited to go to the campus and deliver a short presentation that follow some guidelines to explain your previous experience and the value that you would add to their department.

    Then a panel of 3 professors would ask you questions. The first one will explain you the project and what is expected from the position holder. The second one would have specific technical questions, and the third one would have more general questions like in a regular company interview.

    The visit concludes with a tour of the research facilities and they give you the answer within 2 or 3 weeks of the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • On the interview I was under the impression that the project was going to be completely different to my previous ones, which was not a problem for me. But for some reason they were looking for somebody who had already done the same work previously.
      The unexpected question was if I new the differences about two brands of a specific equipment.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Bath in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Job advertised on jobs.ac.uk. They have a full online application system. If you're short listed then you can go in for an interview, in my case there were maybe 3-5 of us. I was the only one in that day as they others were Skype interviewing from other continents. The interview consisted of a short talk on my own research followed by questions from two interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • Quite open questions such as, "what makes a good simulator".   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty inflexible with start dates and pay, this is because of the way postdocs are funded externally.
