This is a question for postdocs/ECRs predominantly.
I am post-PhD, all signed off and awarded towards the end of January. Although I am working on book proposals, articles for publication and pursuing leads on post-doctoral funding, I am unemployed. I have a supportive partner who is working (but currently furloughed). I appreciate the precarious nature of employment for ECRs, so I am looking for the experience of other people, how you have financially managed, how you plan for the future (e.g. pensions) etc. I am looking for a job in my area whilst I beaver away on my research projects, but am not having much joy. I am feeling a little at sea, very much lost and a lot superfluous to society, so tales of survival, advice, tips all completely welcome.
Take care all.
