I'm just reaching that point. I have looked at post-doctoral scholarships. Applications for these all seemed to close around March - when I was up to my ears writing my thesis. Now I am looking for a job. However, all I seem to have managed to do is to (seemingly) make my CV into a paper aeroplane and then launch it into a gaping chasm never to be heard of ever again.

I've Reached the Peak of PhD Stress: Waiting for my Result Post-Viva

Can't say how relieved I am to discover I am not alone. Submitted my thesis on 13th June and have not yet heard a dicky bird. I have been warned that it could take some time. Like anz07, I too have spent an additional year on my thesis rewriting post viva. The viva was truly one of the most awful experiences of my life thus far. I have worked bloody hard to address ALL the revisions the external examiner demanded (the internal examiner was happy with it as it stood) and now I am in limbo. Basically, I want to know if I am a Dr or not. I have tried distracting myself with all manner of things, but nothing seems to work. Best way to describe my current mind-set is - to use some key words - Bored. Twitchy. Stressed. Depressed. Anxious. Lethargic. Basically, I just don't know quite what to do with myself. HELP!!!!!!!!!
