The life of a starving academic

So limbo was grating on me and I started approaching thinktanks abroad to do public diplomacy research. The good news: I have gracious offers to be a visiting fellow in India, Armenia, Ghana and Croatia. The bad news: no one actually wants to pay me for my research. Thanks everyone, but a desk in an office or the offer of housing does not make me a research fellow, it makes me an intern. But there are some more promising prospects for gainful research employment in Brazil, Turkey and Norway, and hopefully something will come through.
