Check the contract - there will probably be a notice period. But personally in your shoes I would absolutely apply for f/t jobs, take anything offered and quit.


You are right of course. I will do this. Thanks to you both for your kind words.

Hi Lalalup

Could you rephrase the final question you ask, as I don't quite follow. Thanks!

Ah, sorry about that! Just wondering if I should accept the 1hr/a week (alongside potential for more work) offer for a year while keep looking for jobs elsewhere or will it be u acceptable to leave after say, 4, 18, 25 weeks?

Hi everyone,

I've recently finished my PhD and facing a lot of insecurity. My supervisor mentioned potentially having a postdoc for me, but he's not got back to me about it after I repeatedly checked. Now, university is offering me a few teaching hours - basically 1 a week for the whole school year on top of potential other hours and research assistant work I'm doing at the moment (just 20hrs/month and ending in December).

On the other hand I've been applying for work. I feel I'm at the age where I should finally start building a pension, and stop working odd jobs and living month to month. I am waiting to hear back from a few positions I'm very interested in.

Basically, what it boils down to is my question is: is it not done to quiet a associate lecturer position of just 1hr/week halfway through - or sooner - to pursue something else? Is it common practice? Would I be burning bridges with no going back?

Thanks for your time and thoughts!
