I wonder when a faculty position at a top UK university is advertised, how many applications will be submitted. I am just asking about an estimate of the average. For example, consider a Reader position in an engineering field.

I wish to know how competitive are the faculty jobs in the UK in comparison with the US.

    Depends on uni, department and location. – Captain Emacs Apr 8 '17 at 18:04

    in comparison with the US — Your baseline for comparison also depends on university, department, and location. You really need to be more specific. – JeffE Apr 8 '17 at 19:12
