I am going to apply for a postdoc position in the US. Application requirements include a cover letter and research statement.
I am not a native English speaker and in my department, unfortunately, there is no natives. My question is whether (i) it would be useful/necessary to have both texts checked by a professional copy-editor for grammatical correctness, or (ii) whether I should send them uncorrected.
I understand that '(i)' would facilitate the understanding of the texts. However, '(ii)' would more honestly reflect my level of written English communication.
