So last Friday I was down in Essex. It was for an interview with Prof Chris Reynolds at the University of Essex in Colchester. The journey down was quick and around midday I had arrived at the uni. I had lunch bought for me and an informal chat with Reynolds. Then I had to pass an hour when the other interview candidate of the day arrived. Lets just say I wasn't that impressed by him (I was in a suit he wasn't). We then had our presentations that lasted for 15 mins each (well they should of, the other guys one last I'm sure for another 10 mins and was very boring and not that relevant to Reynolds own work). I had my interview first and I think I came across confident, flexible and creative, along with being hard working etc. Colchester, what I saw of it, isn't that bad and really if I had to move down that way it's not that big a deal.

Leaving Colchester and getting back to Manchester was a nightmare and took far too long.

So that's one interview to hear back from. I have made it to the long list of the Warwick postdoc, waiting to hear back from a consultancy job in Surrey, a credit analyst/programing/forcasting job in Halifax, and I have a telephone interview tomorrow morning for a cheminformatic post with Unilever. Oh and there is still the Manchester funding to wait for.

Oh and today it is now 3 months until the wedding. Yay!

Got onto the long list for the Warwick postdoc. Not totally my best possible post but still good. Just got to answer some question for it and hope I make it to the short list and get to interviews.

Today was the deadline on the UMIP submission, so that has now gone in and we wont get to hear anything more until Paul goes for the Q&A session for it on the 4th, so finger crossed on that one.

Tomorrow is my interview in Essex. This postdoc is totally in my field of expertise so I am looking forward to this one. I have to give a 15 minute presentation on my research, so today I have been updating my final year presentation. I have given it twice so I know I can fit it and plus I know it like the back of my hand and hvae had the chance of updating a number of the figures and tables since I last presented it. Plus it's only going to be to a few people so that should be well easy.

Now just got to hear about the consultancy job in Surrey, the job in Yorkshire and the postdoc in Venice.
