I assume you have put together your UXR portfolio and that it demonstrates your ability to do research in the product development lifecycle. My experience is that only very large companies and consulting firms hire pure researchers so the fact that they are asking suggests they have never hired a researcher or they just ask as a general set of questions. ‘Design knowledge’ is a broad topic, yes I would expect my researcher to know ‘design thinking’ and where and how their work integrates. I would expect my researcher to know how to synthesis their work to be used in product development. No I would not expect my researcher to know visual design principles or interaction design. Now information architecture could be a part of research so it might be worth doing a personal project on that as a case study in your portfolio.
