    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at University of Newcastle (UK) (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a Skype interview and the first time I had a job interview on Skype. Interview included a 10 minutes presentation followed by some questions from the interview panel. The interviewer were very friendly and polite and interview went smoothly. The questions were all relevant and nothing too complicated. They acknowledged that I addressed some of their questions in my presentation and moved on to the other areas. It was more like a 2 ways conversation and I felt very relax and confident throughout of the process. I got an e-mail about 90 minutes after interview with job offer. They did not force me to decide quickly and gave me a 3.5 days to think and decide to accept the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at University of Newcastle (UK) (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    First I got my job position offered informally by the professor in a pub, he then invited me over for an informal chat, next I accepted the job, but to make sure that the guidelines were followed, he organised an application procedure, after which i was invited for a job interview via Skype. I did my best to write a good application letter and to do well at the interview - because I of course did not know how serious they were taking this. However, when one of the interviewees said "I look forward working with you" it was clear to me that they were not really taking the interview serious.

    Interview Questions

    There was no negotiation phase, I got the contract based on standard salary settings as set for 1st year post-docs. No negotiation possible
