    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abcam in January 2014.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 2 hours. It's a two part interview, first part you demonstrate your technical skills and the second part you talk to an HR and go through a list of behaviour based questions.
