One down, one to go

Just had a phone call from the head of department at Manchester – I didn’t get the lectureship. He said that it was a “two horse race” between myself and the internal candidate (Sean), and that it had been extremely close (they’d originally wanted to get the decision out last Friday, but had to deliberate further until today).

Surprisingly, I’m not at all bitter about this. Sean’s a bloody strong candidate (and, to be brutally honest, a stronger candidate than myself) and in many ways is the natural for the post.

Time to start preparing for the Edinburgh interview next month…
