I interviewed at University of Glasgow

Interview

In the zoom call, you meet the professor and talk about your research proposal. They ask ad hoc questions on how did you formulate your proposal, and why do you want to do it in the University of Glasgow. Previous record of an academic publication is a serious advantage.

Interview Questions
  • Describe how you are going to draw funding to your research.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Glasgow (Glasgow, Scotland, Scotland) in Oct 2020

Interview

I was invited to a video call with two managers after providing a comprehensive and personalised cover letter, a full CV alongside entering my information on the recruitment database, and completing additional forms on the online system. Upon receiving the invitation I was advised to select a time from a variety of hour slots over the space of 2 days. It was in this process I identified that there were 3 interviews of a similar nature being conducted (including my own). I was also advised with 5 days notice to prepare a 10 minute presentation with a specific brief. I spent around 12 hours preparing this 10 minute presentation. Upon entering the meeting I was greeted by two individuals who told me about their roles, I was then advised the layout of the meeting in which I was told I would introduce myself, complete my presentation then be asked 3 questions. Within seconds I had to start my presentation and was advised they would be strict about the time limit. Once the presentation was complete I was provided no feedback, and we jumped straight into the questions. Again no feedback or discussion about my answers, I asked two questions at the end and was told I should expect the result within 1 week. I was emailed 2 days later to advise that they would not be progressing with my application, and received absolutely no reason for this or feedback regarding my presentation even when I emailed requesting this.

The invitation to an interview was through an automated email with no possibility to contact a real person for clarifications or additional details. Only a phone number was provided for urgent matters. The interview process itself was fine. The announcement of the outcome took way longer than they said.
