    Reviewers have been assigned; theoretically they have 6 weeks to return their comments. Might get tight with the next scientific council...

    Thanks!

    The institute just sent the announcement that the next scientific council will be on 26 of October. The time given to reviewers is 6 weeks, and usually it is extended to 8 weeks (it can be more, in one case it took over 4 months). While my case looks very solid (compared to other habilitations that I have seen approved, when I look at the number and the objective quality measures of the publications), it is still unrealistic to expect all reviews in 4 weeks. Looks like I will miss out by a few weeks, which basically means that there will be a delay of about half a year, if not more - unless they manage to pull some rabbit out of a hat.

    Either way, it is completely out of my hands.

    Does it mean you get to stay in Spain 6 more months?

    No, it is fully independent of that.

    I went on unpaid leave of absence in Poland, and had planned to return to my old position after the post-doc in Spain finishes. It just means I won't be able to start a higher position, which is a bit of a shame as this higher position has some benefits (slightly higher salary, full freedom to work at home, ability for phd students, ...). Still, most of those can probably be arranged informally if the comments are positive (the council decision is then just a formality).
    It also could have made it easier for me to start teaching classes the next semester - not sure if that would happen, and not sure I would want it to happen so fast. One thing is that another institute was interested in me, and I was thinking of going part-time there and part-time at my old institute but I don't know how this delay changes matters. They were interested because of my research profile and publication history, so it is very possible it does not change anything and they would hire me as it is.

    By all means go for part-time other institute. Working for single employer is monopsony (dependent on single buyer of your labour). Working for multiple institutions gives benefits of:
    - redundancy - if one place goes under or no longer needs you, you still have income
    - more experience - you get different experience at another place
    - more contacts and larger social network, you also become a node through which information passes
    - more money, yes you have a bit of friction at both ends but you have to look after own interest - no one else will.

    I took a week off leave (summer vacation) to teach IT course for another company two weeks ago and I also teach Linux webinar I created which is very popular - people are actively writing emails saying my webinar is great.
