I have finished my PhD at the end of last month (the official graduation will be in a couple of months, but I already have the official award letter and received the last stipend of my scholarship). I have received a job offer and all the documents to start a postdoc in the US, and I'm now completing my application for a J1 visa.
Reading online it seems in the "current employer" of the DS-160 form I should write "not employed", as I am not currently working (even if only for this month). When I'm asked to explain though, what should I say? Should I explain that I have already committed to work for a US university, or what?
