I'm a 3rd year PhD student in the UK. Due to the specialty of my topic (sociology), I spent two years collecting data, and now I plan to write up three manuscripts during my 3 rd year. My supervisors want me to graduate within one year (or 1.5 years), but I'm not sure if I can successfully find a job after my graduation, so I plan to simultaneously look for postdoc positions.
My question is, if I plan to graduate within 1 year, is it too early for me to start applying for postdoc positions? Because if I start right now, I haven't had any publications (I've submitted one but still under review, and another two are under writing).
