Part-time Lecturer In Translation Studies Interview

Part-time Lecturer In Translation Studies
Bath, England (UK)

I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – Content of course/how much to cover, as I had no teaching experience at the time   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Fixed rate of pay so no negotiation, quite low considering the time spent preparing and marking

Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Bath, England (UK)

I applied online and 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 Question – 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.
