    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Glasgow.

    Interview

    Interviewing for Research Associate positions will be conducted largely by the principal investigator / professor you are likely to be working directly for. As such all interviews are likely to be rather different depending on the style and interests of that professor.

    I had 1 informal interview (1 on 1) and 1 formal interview (small panel) which included a small coding test (relevant for my field) before being offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Expect to be asked about previous projects and previous experiences etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salaries are fixed by HR as the University adheres to union salary scales. Very little negotiation is possible.
