    Positive Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions
