I passed my PhD a few months ago and as I needed the money I had to find a job. I am working in industry but I would say the level of the job is more suited to a masters graduate. My PhD is not from a top university nor do I have great journal papers. How could I enter a research/academic position? Any suggestions please?
I have submitted my minor corrections to the examiners. Some of these corrections did not seem minor to me, but i liaised with one of the examiners about a question that was troubling me prior to giving them in. As i urgently need to move on with my life i have now left the city where that uni is based and am looking for jobs/etc. The question is if the examiner thinks the corrections are no good what is the worst possible outcome? i assume failure and if so how common is that after a minor correction verdict at the viva?
the completion phase of my phd is nearing and my supervisor has suggested that i have not done enough work and i need to extend my time as a full time student and renrol. I cannot really do that as my funding will be over and i cant stay here longer due to personal reasons. could anybody give me some advice on what my options are?
basically nobody has tried to get me deregistered (at least yet). I have received 2 sets of answers from this forum most ppl have told me to start getting official processes moving. The main problem has been a postdoc stirring up trouble as he is leaving in March hates me and has nothng to loose. My supervisor never quite told me exactly what was said to him and to that he would tell me in March when he leaves. All he said was to stay well clear as I have a lot more to loose. There were also allegations (I assume) by this person that he wrote a program for my work which could have led to at least a conference paper. So I was kind of told to make it different and more solid.
