I worked at Dublin City University full-time (More than 5 years)
Great people and excellent facilities
No permanent roles for research staff
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Dublin City University (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).
Panel of six, one external asked scholarly (but not well informed) questions, the other seemed to think she was the 'bad cop' in a 'good cop bad cop' scenario. Actually she didn't know really what she was talking about, but that didn't stop her being unpleasant in a manic fashion. Otherwise questions seemed a bit oblique and I'm not sure they didn't have a candidate already in mind. Bit surprised I was asked to go at all given this institution (the 'entrepreneurial' university of Ireland) had employed my business partner on a temporary contract and had made some arrangement with him to become independent of the partnership and carry out the business wit them in their facility. All bad form isn't it?
