I have been working at University of Cambridge full-time (More than 3 years)
Excellent support for postdocs : various training workshops for presentation skills, interview tips, grant writing, etc. Career service is very helpful. Plenty of expertise in other areas, easy access to other experts - good for collaboration etc.
Housing price are very expensive. Renting and buying in central Cambridge are almost not affordable on a postdoc salary in general (for a single person).
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at University of Cambridge (Girton, England) in July 2015.
I was asked to attend an interview, I was met by the department head, assistant department head and head of HR. I was taken through an explanation of my CV and then on to a selection of possible scenarios I might encounter and how I would approach them, once the interview was over I was notified of having obtained the position within 5 days.
No negotiation was needed, the offer was substantially higher than I was looking for anyway.
