I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Durham in April 2008.
Interview Details – Interview was fairly brief - 45 minutes focussing mainly on the project; potential avenues for further research and possible field work locations. A tour of the labs was detailed with all personnel introduced and their roles explained. The interview panel was small - 3 people who were relaxed and open about their hopes to recruit me.
Interview Question – What experience did I have in laboratory and isotope research and how could I transfer existing skills. Did I have experience in learning new techniques and strategies and working long unsociable hours often on my own. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Very simple - would I leave the job I was currently in to accept this position - I was extremely keen on the new position so I accepted through email later that day.
