    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Dundee (Dundee, Scotland (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and after the closing date was invited to attend an interview. It was a panel with 4 members of staff, each representating different stakeholders. I was asked to prepare a presentation in advance. I was specifically told not to use visual aids - an instruction I ignored! The first 15 minutes of the interview was given over to the presentation, and then there were 45 minutes of fairly informal questioning. The panel made me feel very welcome, and when they offered me the role I was happy to accept.

    PhD Student Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dundee, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Dundee (Dundee, Scotland (UK)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    With PhD positions the stipend is normally set. Basic salaries are £13,500 but MRC/Wellcome trust/CASE studentships are more £16-19,000.
