    PhD Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dundee, Scotland (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dundee, Scotland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at University of Dundee in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I actively sought out my supervisor during my undergraduate degree. They like prospective students to show initiative. Do your homework before the interview. For a PhD position research what the lab has worked on in the past and what work you will be doing in your project. Ask questions about the project in the interview. Make sure and demonstrate that you are committed to the project long term (PhD positions are generally 3-4 years). They are looking for someone with brains but also someone that will fit well into the lab so try and convey your personality in the interview.
