Why not make the first stage of the application process (for a lectureship/postdoc, etc) a simple CV review?
Once your long list is decided, you can then request a letter of application and further materials.
This will save me, you and basically everyone in the process a huge amount of time.
Sorry, what's that, you think that's not a good idea? You don't like this idea because you enjoy [bleeping] wasting my [bleeping] time and energy on long pointless applications?
Fair enough. I understand. It's not your fault that you feel the need to "judge" 100+ application letters by spending 30 seconds on each one to make yourself feel special and important.
Kind [bleeping] regards,

First thing, sorry to hear this. If you browse this forum you will see that everyone has a different journey and often it is a complicated one. Take heart from knowing that your situation is not unique and can be overcome.
Suggestions: would say that your supervisor does have a point, even if it is being expressed a bit flippantly. The fact is that you can try your best to get something submitted and go from there. The key is to get something submitted. Seems you have worked hard in the past 3.5 years and know your stuff. Now is the time to trust yourself.
How many chapters do you have to do, and what percentage is each one complete right now?
Well you know what Locke? I'm going to toast your success with a cuppa right now. Well done indeed, and thanks for sharing the email. As I await my result, I am convinced I will have more corrections to make to my arguments but hope it works out well. I'll post back when I hear from them. Anyway, here's to you: raise your cuppa. 8--)
Hi everyone, has anyone any experience of how long it took their examiners to come back with reports/a verdict on a PhD resubmission?
The waiting is really tricky, and I've looked back on my thesis and seen a few typos here and there which make me wince. Any thoughts or advice?
P.s. Mine was a full resubmission, as outlined previously on this thread.
Take the funded opportunity. I was in precisely your position some years ago and still regret going for a RG uni vs. a full funding opp. Take the money and run. Learn to publish papers and get the thing done as soon as you can. No one interviewing you will care much in 4 years' time because you have already been to an RG university. A cade of been there, done that.
