As I said in the previous post, I've had to concede defeat in my plan to finish most of my dissertation by the end of 2018. I was hired by the University of Jyväskylä to write my thesis and hopefully get it mostly done by new year but further required editing rounds of my article … Continue reading Back to Amateur Leagues
Due to overwhelming demand (i.e. one public blog comment and a few private ones), I thought I'd write a quick summary of what it actually means that I got a continuation to my job as Doctoral Student at University of Jyväskylä.
