    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Bath in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended for the post by the previous incumbent - email exchanges with my questions and an informal interview/tour of around 30 minutes, plus teaching a test class - no formal application through the University HR system, and the post was not externally advertised as far as I know

    Interview Questions
    • Content of course/how much to cover, as I had no teaching experience at the time   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed 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.
