Research Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Cambridge in June 2011.

Interview Details

Interview was with the PI and his colleague, and lasted around 15-20 mins. Lots of standard interview questions including "where do you see yourself in five years time" and questions about perceived problems with academia, why I applied for job etc. Only one technical question on cell culture technique used in master's project. Would advise other candidates to re-familiarise themselves with own research projects and be able to explain techniques used well.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Cambridge in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview (as I was interviewing from another country)
    Followed by job offer

    The university had agrreed to arrange my visa, but in the end this was not done on time and I had to arrange it myself otherwise I would not have been able to take up the job offer on time. Be aware that the Unversity of Cambridge is very very slow when it comes to administration as there is a lot of red tape to get through.
