I worked at European Bioinformatics Institute full-time
Excellent working environment. Amazing health insurance.
Far away from Cambridge (there are free shuttles). Nursery very expensive and with long waiting list.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at European Bioinformatics Institute (Cambridge, East of England, England) in November 2014.
Applied online, had a face to face interview with a panel of 3-4 people, followed by a technical test (which was pretty incomprehensible, but I believe the testing is much better now). Testing varies massively between groups so this information may not be very representative of what will happen if you apply.
