- Why are UK descriptions so vague and their applications such a pain? Really, if you are going to advertise a job put the damn application requirements in the post. WTF is a research description? Are you really asking that I write something specific for your job, which I won't use for any other application, and where I may or may not even be considered? And stop talking in second person! Is this supposed to help me envision myself in the position? Get real people, there is a job market out there and it would help if you could standardize your application procedure!
- I think you'll find that the eight-page-long description of the position available through the link is quite comprehensive. Just make sure you've filed your personal research plan with the ESRC by Michaelmas Term.
- That full description suggests it's post-1500, maybe? Not entirely clear... [14 Oct.]
- Nothing makes me happy like having eight pages of instructions for doing something. I will first study the twenty page guide for using my toaster oven, and then hurry to apply for this one.
