I have always been indecisive by nature (and hate that about myself) but I wish I had my mind made up about this. It's decision time for me- time to pin down positions I want to apply to and actually start applying- and I still am not a 100% sure which route I want to go. :(
May be I need someone to entirely talk me out of academia. Or someone to tell me I can do it, as I doubt my own abilities in making it in academia. I have even begun thinking about how "short" my 3-year post-doc stint is, and why that disqualifies me from academic jobs (Except another post-doc). Therefore, reinforcing this horrible long post-doc culture in my field. One that, prepares you very little for ANY kind of real job thereafter, be it industry or academia.
Well- at least I know I do not want to do another post-doc in India. That much I am sure. I think I am going to explore alternative opportunities in academia and apply to industry jobs alongside.
Deep breaths. Am also reminding myself that nothing is irreversible..and if I absolutely hate what I get into I can re-assess and revise plans. Wish me luck!
