  • Update: Just received a rejection from them (May 18) although I made my conclusions long ago. Luckily I got an offer this year but I must admit that this period was the most frustrating episode of my life. I applied for three hiring cycles after my PhD. Please don't loose hope if you are still in the market. I really wish that academia has a better hiring system that gives timely update to the applicants.
