I am a postdoc who changed the topic quite drastically entering the postdoc phase. The big issue is that my advisor does not provide any guidance or advice at all regarding my project. It has been quite difficult for me to come up with a good research topic in a whole new field on my own and I would like to seek advice from another professor.
Would this be rather unusual? Thinking from other professor's perspective, I don't think they will be too willing to spend time on someone else's postdoc. Ideally, I want a situation where I can continue to discuss my work with another prof and get advice from regularly, but I am also trying to look a for a topic that will allow collaboration with other groups.
I can put in the time and our lab has good funding so I feel like I just need a little bit of insight from more experienced resear.
I would appreciate any advice! Thank you.
