Research Fellow Interview

Research Fellow
Southampton, England (UK)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at University of Southampton in May 2011.

Interview Details – 2 stage hiring process: first stage a written proposal for the research, second stage a 20 mins interview with a panel of people.

The interview include a ppt from my side before moving to the questions from the interviewers. Questions spanned from technical to more general ones about managing the research project proposed.

Interview Question – What would the University/research unit lose if they decided not to hire you, in term of competitiveness on the research agenda?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was quite clear from the beginning so no much space for negotiation.
