Recently, I applied for an advertised post-doctoral position with a researcher in an well-known institution.
After two weeks of not getting a reply, I sent him a reminder, and he replied
"Oh, thanks for getting in touch again, I hadn't seen your previous email. Can we have a chat on Skype tomorrow at X?"
He never showed up for the chat, and has not contacted me since.
Would it be sensible to approach him again, or shall I write it off as a lost cause?
Perhaps it would it be a bad idea anyway to work with someone who lacks the professional skills to keep up with email contact, and stick to commitments?
