I just moved to start a research scientist position, which has put me really behind on the job market search. I'm just getting around to it now and I see that there are several positions I'm interested in with deadlines in mid- to late September, which I'm obviously missing.
Does anyone have any information or advice on whether it still makes sense to apply for these positions? Most don't say the position is closed as much as 'review of applications begins…'
The issue is partly getting my application materials together, but more my letter writers. There is just no way they are going to get letters in within a week. Maybe I could get one or two to do it that quickly…
