Hi to all,
The is a recurring topic, but I guess it requires to reemerge each time with new situation. I had an on-campus PostDoc interview, the all-day kind in the US, at the beginning of September. I gave a presentation, had talks one-on-one with the members of the group, which all went fine. I was told that within a week I should get noticed on the decision. After a week, I sent a thank-you note to the group leader but no reply. Now it's been 3.5 weeks and not a single message came.
I was in contact with one of PostDocs who asked me some questions about previous work of our group, and had contacted with secretary on few occasions, but informally. What should I do at this point?
Should I ask about when might I expect a decision (anything would be okay as long as I get some reply), or should I wait patiently?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I am fairly sure that there were not other candidates for the position, as I applied by sending a CV and got invited over for an interview.
Send an email inquiring about when you can expect a decision or will it be decided soon, as you want to pursue other opportunities.
Usually, if they are not replying you haven't got the job. You can not be certain no-one else applied, as the head of the group could have received CVs informally from other people, similarly to yourself.
