No, unfortunately it is not possible. If a job is expected to be very long,
it is recommended to split it into two or more shorter jobs. In this way, in
case of unexpected termination, only part of the information will be lost.
As a bonus, multiple jobs (at least 4 or 5) allow to do a statistical error
analysis of the results.
