Hi all, I will complete my PhD viva in August 2017. I recently applied for a postdoc position in a german university. And professor said that profile sound interesting and I can join him as soon as I complete my PhD. I was extremely eager to work in his lab. I replied him thanking and accepting offer immediately. And I asked for any further information they wish to provide or they may seek from me. But its been 24 days since I sent reply. No communication after that. Are they usually take this long. what if they dont reply at all. Any suggestions on what this means. Should I apply somewhere else now.
That may be the case but Prof said, it sounds interesting and we intend to give you a postdoc schol for one year. you can start after you finished Ph.D. We have lot of students from your country in our university. So you can feel familiar. city has cheap living costs.
Other part of the msg was technical details, where they told me about lab facilities. I had few good publications in exactly same field. No where they said to conduct interview. and it seemed to me a direct offer. But please judge and suggest me on further course of action. as I have no experience in this.
So you have not been interviewed then by the sounds of it. In that case I dont see this as a job offer but something is very strange here. For a start, I dont know what a "postdoc scholarship" is.
I would have thought a scholarship was for students. Postdocs are not students.
Secondly I not aware of anyone who hires someone without conducting an interview.
I just wonder if something is being lost in translation.
