    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Interview followed by a 1-hour test. The interview was mainly competency-based and why I would like to work there. No 'silly' questions like 'what's your biggest weakness' which I thought was nice because I find those questions pointless. In the test I was given output from an analysis and asked to answer several questions about it.

    Interview Questions

    • Think of a time when something went wrong with your analysis, and how did you deal with it.   Answer Question
