Quote From EmMurphy:
Hi Everyone

I'm in need of lots of participants for my dissertation. It a should take about 35 minutes of your time, it involves a questionnaire and computerised task. Both have to be completed on a laptop/computer. I'd be more than happy to do your studies too!

Below is the link if you'd like to take part

I just checked out uni regulations and you either get minor revisions or re-submit, with the examiners deciding whether it's a viva is needed again or not.

Also am I correct in thinking it's too early to look and apply now when my submission will probably be at the end of November?

I've found a perfect job starting in Sep though!

Do you guys look at any other websites besides jobs.ac.uk?

Jobs.ac.uk should have an app!

Quote From Zutterfly:
I would just like to moan about applying (and being rejected) for jobs. I would also like to add that it is not helpful when your sup wonders why you aren't going for jobs that are about a quarter of the hours of part time hours, and perceiving you as being unrealistic for wanting a job that covers the rent.


Gosh sometimes supervisors do live in a different world entirely! Must be very frustrating for you.

I'm looking for part time post doc of research assistant post, but haven't come across anything yet. I'm wondering whether I'm being unrealistic expecting a part time post.

Quote From Zutterfly:


I use a single quotation for any quotes, and double quotation for quotes within a quote...e.g. if a participant says 'so my mum said "why are you applying there?" and I thought...' (completely made up quote). I hope that makes sense!


Perfect, thank you! I'm going to copy that! :)

Quote From Zutterfly:


We will have to keep updating each other when we are cutting word counts for motivation haha


Will do :) It is going to be a pain!

On another note, when do you use double quotation (") and single quotation (')? I'm so confused!

Zutterfly: that's true, better to include at first, and then take it out. I'll do that, thank you!

I think I'm going to have to cut about 10K too.

Quote From chickpea:
What's a coding framework? Have you both used a type of analysis that requires this, or is this something that a thesis should have and that I've never heard of? Eek!


It's based on type of analysis - not required by default. Don't worry.

Definitely take the job, and after you've left and got the job, put a formal complaint in about the PI!

Be assertive. Say you have no choice but to take the job. Work out your notice period on your current job.

If its easier, blame it on finances or a change in family circumstances or health, no one usually argues with that.

My sympathies with you Zutterfly, it must be awful having to wait so long!

Quote From Zutterfly:


Hugh- Today I have been starting the editing process. I have been working on my introductory chapter that is only half finished. I have not accomplished very much today- I am writing about the policy background of my work and I find it depressing and mind numbing. So, this week I aim to have most of the policy section done, and have completed my conference paper.
.


Best of luck with that! I haven't written my introduction yet, but I've placed policy background in the literature review chapter. I wonder if I should shift it to introduction ... I do worry about repetition. I feel with my discussion and conclusion chapters there is quite a bit of repetition, lets see what supervisor has to say.

On another note, have any of you included the coding framework/codesheet in the appendices? I just feel like if I do, my appendices will just be way too long, and I wont be able to bind the thesis into one file.

This week I'm hoping to complete my discussion chapter. It hasn't actually taken me very long to write (you were right about that!). But I'm nervous about it, and I think it'll be sent to my supervisor with a disclaimer saying this is the very first draft - please go easy on me!

What are you doing this week?

I am having a week's annual leave (sorry!). Slightly anxiety-provoking given how much there is still to do, but I know I can't work through the entire summer with no time off, and this is a logical place in my writing to have a breather.


That's good, it's important to take a break! I hope you have a lovely one :)
