Hazy Shade of Winter

Yes, it's this time of the year again. Deadlines are approaching. And I'm enormously happy that this January I will not be sorting through letters saying 'Thank you for your interest in our theory group... We regret to inform you...'


If you are out on the market for position hunting, this post is especially for you: Good luck, don't give up!



    "Time, time, time,
    See whats become of me
    While I looked around
    For my possibilities
    I was so hard to please

    But look around,
    leaves are brown
    And the sky
    Is a hazy shade of winter

    [...]

    Hang on to your hopes, my friend
    That's an easy thing to say,
    But if your hopes should pass away
    Simply pretend
    That you can build them again"

    Not to have to write applications is great, indeed :-)

    BTW, maybe you are interested in this, which I found by chance tonight:

    The mathematicians, via the American Mathematical Society, provide Tips for the Job Search: Applying for Academic and Postdoctoral Positions, in the October 2006 issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society. I have only skimmed over it so far, but I guess, something similar by the APS or other Physical Societies would be helpful and fill a gap, ...

    Best, stefan
