Let’s start by saying these are only my opinions. I’ll justify them so I hope they make sense to you. But different selection committees will have different requirements. Don’t over generalise to different positions :)
Here’s a screenshot of the application procedure from the job ad. It asks for a CV, contact details of your referees, and a covering letter.
Not much, right?
I think this makes the application pretty freaking hard! Let me explain why.
A wonderful walk in the Lake District today, but just before my pre-dinner nap (this holiday is LOVELY) a little thread about the requirement of “a PhD or equivalent” for the job that I’m SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO APPLY FOR with @AutisticaUK at @turinginst! turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here’s a little screen grab of the section in the essential requirements of the job description:
I tweeted yesterday about the #FullStack requirements of this job.
It seems pretty silly to require web development skills AND a PhD! They aren’t usually taught together.
Here are some screen grabs from the job ad that talk about what you need.... the essential requirements.
I was nervous writing this ad. It’s asking for A LOT to have someone join an academic project for a salary of between £34,000 and £40,000 if they can do ALL the #FullStack development! There are lots of jobs that would pay you a lot more!!
