I'm about to start the last year of my PhD and apart from filling the gaps in my work i started to check the postdoc opportunities here and there.
The thing is that i found a few Labs (university groups) which are working in a more or less same area as i'm doing my PhD. Well, their not doing exactly same thing i do but still same category (Motion Analysis), and they are good at it!
So i like to work with them as a post-doc after finishing my PhD. But i couldn't find any post-doc in their website. So how does it work? should i just sit down and pray to hear a post-doc call from them in the exact moment (ex. a couple of months before my PhD is done) :) or is there another way to approach/contact them regarding this purpose?
If is it the latter case, then how? should send them emails now directing asking about post-doc opportunities regarding 1 year from now?
