I am applying for different postdocs at the same institution. They hire during the year in different subfields of my main field. I already read some questions related to my problem (here, here, here), but I think that my situation is little bit different, because I just keep applying to one institution.
My situtation, consecutively:
- I applied for a fellowship to one professor for a specific project. It was not successfull.
- In the same time, a similar position in a different group popped out. I'v asked the professor what he thinks, and he advised me to apply for it. No success.
- Several weeks later, the professor told me that he discussed my CV with a different group. They want to invite me for an interview.
- Now, a new postdoc is available. I am thinking of waiting for the result of option 3 and than apply for option 4. Or should I apply for both at once?
What if they will not hire me now, but a new job will pop out in a few months? I would like to know whether they can perceive me as someone who want to be hired to a particular institution and a particular country rather than someone who want to be hired for doing research.
