I want to apply for a postdoc position and I am interested in the subject area of postdoc. One of required documents is research statement. I have currently submitted my thesis and plan to defend my thesis soon, so I do not have enough time to write a perfect research statement including how to address some problems related to the subject of postdoc at this moment. I think it will need enough time to investigate all sides of research. I appreciate your opinion on this problem.

I have already read several topics about research statement, but I am still confused about writing a good research statement. For instance, how general a research statement can be? What are the features of Convincing research statement?

In addition, I have a paper related to the subject of postdoc (which is Q4 w.r.t scimago website). Does this paper have any weight in my application?
