I've already spent some months in a multi-year post-doc in Europe, doing clinical research. However, neither the project nor the life outside the lab seem good enough for my interests, and I'm planning on moving forward.
I'd like go for either an industry job (1st choice) or another postdoc (2nd option). I have a few questions about this:
Should I immediately tell my supervisor, or might I just give her a short notice?
Regarding the next move (either industry or other postdoc): will it be hard to get a new position if I don't manage to get a recommendation letter from my current supervisor? I guess I may have to ask for recommendation letters to my PhD references. If this could be a problem, how to avoid/minimize it?
...And any general advice/experience about the topic would likewise be appreciated.
