    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cranfield University (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Skype interview with three panel members with relevant technical expertise. The interview was chaired by the professor in charge for the position, and the other two members had expertise in the field relevant to my research background. In about an hour, we discussed in significant detail about my research experience as a doctoral student and how that related to the responsibilities of the fellow (if hired). The panel also enquired about specific ideas that I could bring to their team for the current project.
    The interview ended with an opportunity for me to learn more about their research facilties as well as other relevant knowledge about the position, such as what specific ideas were being worked on for the optimization of aircraft wing designs.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cranfield University (Cranfield, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied through the online website Newscientistjobs.co.uk and got a call for the interview within 4 weeks. Cranfield University had sent a cab to pick me up from the MK train station as the University is 7-8 miles from the Milton Keynes (MK). Interview panel gave a warm welcome and the whole process of question and answer was more of a conversation rather than a regorous torture. Mostly the question was related to my MSc and the Projects I waroked on during the Masters. My interview panle included three faculty members from the department and I was given the offer just after the interview.

    • They specifically asked about my MSc thesis and how did I manage to come with the result and what were the problems I encountered and how did I solve them.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I just sent an email with my CV to a professor that was doing research in a field i was interested in. The same day he answered telling me that my CV was good and I was welcome to do an internship. Then I had to fill out a form mentioning the professor as my tutor and send it back, and from there on it was just bureaucracy to obtain admission.
