    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Leicester (Leicester, England) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted via Skype as I was not in a near distance. There was a panel of three persons and all were very welcoming and polite. The weird thing is that they contacted my referees before the interview -what a strange practice... Anyway, It was unfortunate that the sound was not particularly clear but at the end I was informed that their decision was ultimately down to who had the most relevant experience for the post, and their preferred candidate had more experience in the field, etc.
