I started my PhD 2 years ago and I was my supervisor's first PhD student. He had no funding for any of the projects he promised me at the time. Later, he received a grant and so I was able to switch focus but I've had this weird feeling that he wants me gone for almost a year now. Here are some things that have happened:
I didn't have a solid project, to begin with. When I finally was given something solid to work on, it turned out that it is a 5-year project - I was given this during my 3rd semester of joining the program;
In my department PhDs are normally about 4 to 4.5 years;
He hired me and another student when I started but the other student had taken all the funded projects our lab offered at the time. This student also receives all side projects in the lab;
In my first year I worked on a review, which he barely looked at. When he submitted it he essentially edited my parts 2 days before submission. I heard about this the day before he submitted the paper;
When I suggest doing one practical training or a workshop so that I can expand my skillset he declines. He only provides me with information about pieces of training that don't interest me (and aren't very much in line with what I want to do in the future).
I've suggested having a second supervisor but he has refused to say that he "knows how to do his job" and that I should leave if I am not happy;
I've caught him lying about a few things. The project he decided to give me after 3 semesters is a new type of project for his lab and we had to purchase equipment and find the space for its storage. For 2 months he kept saying that the orders have been placed and everything has been arranged. But it turned out that the order wasn't placed.
during committee meetings he has asked me to tell my committee that I am working on papers when in reality I was busy reading a textbook he had given me (after asking him 100 times about recommendations because he doesn't recommend anything on his own);
It is now almost a year since I've last heard from anything else I've written;
The lab next to ours is understaffed. I was asked to help out with a couple of their projects but he hired a BSc student to help them out;
He allows other students to contribute to my new project. But I am not allowed to contribute to anything extra - essentially my tasks are taken away and they are not replaced with anything;
He doesn't communicate with me. When I started working on the new project I had to write a proposal for it to the department, it had turned out (I found out about this 2 weeks ago) that I had messed up some of the timelines in the proposal -not on purpose, I thought they were the correct timelines. He never communicated anything with me.
In general, he is never interested in my development and often says he doesn't have time, doesn't have time to review my work, doesn't have time to train me on some methods, doesn't have time for pretty much anything. The only thing he does find time for is a weekly more or less 1h meeting over Zoom. I've tried talking to my committee, the department, him. He says he is not interested in talking about such matters because they are pointless discussions that don't lead anywhere. I feel extremely guilty for what is going on, yet I don't know what to do. Is this normal in academia? Do you have any advice for a lost grad student?
