    It varies a lot. For astronomy usual job posting season is September-December though. I have had a couple interviews last couple months too, some unsuccessful and one pending. We'll see!

    Warsaw has a good amount of stuff to see too of all sorts. Hard to go wrong there, haha. (Bulk of my family, including my parents, are/came from there.)

    haha well i hope academia doesnt fall through! are there many academic jobs? do they hire often?

    I think I originally wanted to do krakow but my grandma told me over the weekend that her family were from warsaw - so now i kind of want to go there!! I think it will be ridiculously cold.. but I really wanted to try and find the least australian place I could and go and have christmas there haha

    It'll be the choice if my first choice of academia falls through. =p And of course would still need to find a job in the field too. But I'll worry about that later if I have to!

    Cool! Any particular parts of Poland in mind? There's a lot of good places to go for snow stuff in Poland (note: waaaay colder than the UK in winter, haha). Warsaw is the capital and Krakow is the other major city to check out if you like seeing old architecture and the sort.

    yeah fair enough.. i think australia is probably the best place to live. data science is a very lucrative field haha so good choice!!

    Academia, and open to overseas but probably would still like to be in Australia. But we'll see what comes up. If not, data science sort of field.

    Goodness, good luck with the move and all!

    Yeah, that's quite a gap...

    Alright, just very busy. @[email protected] Last couple months of the PhD now, and next week back on the coast as I wrap up and for the between-thesis-and-job part (whenever that is) (flatmate doing the same, etc).

    Neither have I, not outside the harbour or not on a simple ferry anyway! But when parents are paying this time around I am eager to be a cruise person. ;p

    Some in America, one in Holland, couple in CSIRO (Sydney or Perth) thus far. More to be done in the next couple months at least.

    Oh cruise... how brave of you! I've never been on a cruise before but not sure I am a cruise person haha. you will have to let me know how it is!

    haha ok so I assume not many of them going around then? what unis have you applied to? I hope you get a fancy fellowship!!

    I try to! But the New Caledonia trip is actually a cruise. :B

    PffftHAHAHAHA tenured position now, that's funny. =p No, a post-doc position is what it is called, and I've applied for fellowships too (also postdoc level but a bit fancier/you do your own project with that typically). And idk, if there are jobs at uysd and I can get it then yes, but there's been nothing new posted yet. Other unis/facilities in sydney however.
