I am a postdoc in Spain, ending my first year of research. My bosses are currently trying to terminate my contract a year early, since (a) I haven't published anything (given 8 talks and attended 3 teleconferences, though), and (b) the PhD student whose dissertation they assigned me to direct quit. I've been dealing with constant checks on my whereabouts also, since they say I absolutely have to be in the office during Spanish business hours, rather than getting here early and leaving early. That aside, they have never commented on/helped me with my work. Is this normal? If not, what is it normally like to work as a postdoc? What is considered normal productivity/working hours?
