It'd be funny if it were happening to someone else.
That sucks. I'm skipping all the postdocs but one this year because they're so much damn work. So, that means one less person to compete against on the postdoc apps you _haven't_ missed! Yeah, I know. Real comforting, eh?
I had a nightmare last night that a postdoc application went astray and was returned to me on the day of the deadline, so I was running around trying to find same-day delivery for it.I agree with Sisyphus's implicit claim that postdocs are too much work. Postdocs are at least as competitive as TT jobs, but require much more initial effort to apply to.My advice to you: DON'T TELL THE PROFESSOR THAT YOU MISSED THE DEADLINE.
I almost blew a tt deadline this past monday. Lucky for me, they had online submission so I got it in just in the nick... Cover letter was atrocious, however - written on the fly into an online text box. If my advisor knew he'd be mortified. I'll won't tell if you won't. Best of luck!
