    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University College Cork (Cork (Ireland)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Dismissive, I felt the job was already earmarked for someone else and that they simply went through the process, or appeared to, so as to comply with the law. I did not feel they were interested in me. I really don't have anything else helpful to say

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at University College Cork (Cork (Ireland)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed by three researchers on the project. Was pretty nervous but they set me at ease and just walked through my CV highlights. The worst part about the whole process was the time between application and interview (3-4 months) Overall as pleasant an interview as could have been possible.

    I applied online. I interviewed at University College Cork in June 2012.

    Interview

    It was a great interview. Questions were all related to research interest and learning interest. As a first job I agreed with all the offers. Overall it was a very nice experience. Within 2 hours of interview over phone I was unexpectedly offered a job. In other universities it took at least 2 weeks to get any interview feedback.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University College Cork (Cork (Ireland)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    There was no interview process. If there was an interview process - obviously this is purely a guess, as there was no interview process - one would imagine that it may have covered such areas as an overall interest in education, why focus on chosen field, what learned to date in chosen field within formal education and what learned outside of formal education, what aims are for next five years, what would like to achieve in academic field - if academia is the long-term plan, why you, what will you bring to the job that others cannot, etc etc
