I hope this is not a duplicate, I saw this question: How long before PhD graduation should I start applying for post-doc positions?
However, I didn't find any analogous question for applying for jobs (academic). Is there a certain timeline to look for jobs?
In particular, do I need to have completed the PhD or fulfill any requirement (e.g. submitted thesis) before I can look for jobs?
I am considering any kind of academic job, tenured, or non-tenured jobs like lecturer and adjunct posts.
I am looking at mid-tier universities in Asia, in applied mathematics and related fields.
