    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Medical Research Council.

    Interview

    Three people were on the panel and they were all very friendly and approachable. They asked me to tell them a little about myself, why I applied for the job and what type of experience I had. The whole interview only lasted 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a little on salary once I told them I would be finished with my Masters before starting the job.
