Hi everyone! I really need an advice from all of you. I've found a possibility for a PhD but it's not funded so, together with the professor who offered me the position, I'm writing a project for a scholarship... But it's a very competitive one and I don't know if it will have a positive result!! Do you think that, at the same time, I should search for other PhD?
Thank you TreeofLife and newlease36!! But if I apply to another PhD and I get the position more interesting/paid/whatever, what should I say to this professor? I'm worried about his reaction on losing his time and waste of energy... I don't know if he knows that a student search for a lot of opportunities in order to get a PhD.. I need a book of good manners for PhD applicants!!
This feels familiar... I am sure I once advised this before and then pm133 came on and advised otherwise! I agree that there is no need to tell. In my situation, I did it because I had known the potential supervisor for a couple of years and I wanted to tell her rather than she hear it on the vine and be surprised or whatever (academia is a very small world). It didn't risk my PhD position but I can see how it might be something you'd want to consider.
