    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Natural History Museum (UK) (London, England).

    Interview

    Online application, cover letter and academic CV. They emailed me that I was shortlisted and the interview was only after a week. 30-min online phone (not video) interview with a panel of three-all members of the research group, no HR- using Microsoft Teams. First an introduction from the group leader about the project, then questions about my experience and technical knowledge in relation to their project. Also some more standard ones, such as if I have ever been a member of a team. Overall, friendly atmosphere, tried to keep it as a conversation. My skills were quite relevant to the role so I found the whole process of average difficulty. Even so, after the interview (it took a week to get informed on the decision) when I asked for feedback, they said they found somebody closer to the job description qualifications.
