    I worked at The Institute of Cancer Research full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very well connected research institution that performs very well in attracting funding and training staff. Remarkably well positioned to interact with the clinic via partnership with the Royal Marsden Hospital.

    Cons

    Tending toward translational projects, possibly at the cost of basic research.
    The Institute is split between two sites, which can present frustration for collaborative activities between teams.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at The Institute of Cancer Research.

    Interview Details

    I got invited for a phone interview a few days after the job posting closed, and invited for an in-person interview a day after that, which was conducted 2 weeks later. I was told that my references will be contacted before the in-person interview. I was asked to briefly present my previous research to the group. They were very polite and friendly and asked some questions about my work. I was given a tour of the lab/offices, taken for lunch and had a nice chat about future projects afterwards. I was offered the job the next day.

    Interview Questions
    • The only non-scientific question was "How well do you perform in a team setting"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, the salary was already set to the maximum of the band that job was advertised in.
