    Research Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monash (Australia)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Monash University (Monash (Australia)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    This was a research oriented role and interviewed with a couple of Professors from one of the research centers, very relaxed. Briefly, introduced themselves and described the role and explained what was required of me. The interviewers took turns to ask questions but mainly focused on a paper i had published. The other interviewer looked less interested and i should say maybe was a bit rude at the end of the interview. But, all looked genuinely nice people.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Monash University (London, England (UK)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    As I was overseas the interview consisted of a phone interview with a panel of professors that I would be working with. The interview was relatively informal in that regard. We exchanged questions regarding the scope of the research project, how it was funded and what my role in it would be.
