I recently got an offer to interview for a post masters program. This would be similar to a post doc in execution, however the program lasts 1 year. However, before that offer I accepted a position at a company I really wanted to work in, but have had delays in hiring.
I plan on working with this company and do not want to quit. However, would it be appropriate to attempt to negotiate or explain my situation during the in person interview they want me to attend?
I was hoping to maybe be able to do both programs, with the post masters done in a lesser capacity. Or should I notify them of my job and decline the interview?
Edit: this post masters program is similar to a post doc in that it is a paid program. The fellowship would provide a salary and health insurance for the year it lasted.
