    Postdoctoral Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Cambridge (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied online, using the University's own online system. I was required to ask three different people to send my prospective group reference letters on my behalf. This was done by email. Got an email confirming that my application was received. After a few weeks, I was notified, also by email, that they would like to invite me for a personal interview in Cambridge (they covered the costs with travel and accommodation for one night). After one week, I received the job offer.

    The interview took just over an hour, and it was not easy in general (the interviewers were absolutely polite, but the questions were tough). I consider it to have been a fair interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They sent me papers I needed to read in preparation for the interview, and asked me many questions about them. This was to assess my competence and experience in the field. Then, they asked many technical questions related to the methodologies and tools that would be used in the work to be carried out. Some questions of general nature were also asked, such as "Why do you want to leave your current place and came work here?".   Answer Question
