Naturejobs is hosting its first, free, live webcast on how to write a successful grant proposal on 30 September 2015.
Becoming an independent researcher in academia is crucial to achieving future success. Part of that journey starts with getting your own funding. Without funding, there is no science, no opportunity for developing skills and no opportunity to develop independence. As a result, we are hoping to provide some insights into how early career researchers can be more prepared, and more successful, in grant applications.
So on 30 September 2015 at 4pm BST (8AM PDT, 11AM EDT, 5PM CEST), in this first, free Naturejobs webcast, four speakers share their insights into how to be successful in your applications.
Susan Marriot (President of BioScience Writers, LLC and Professor at Baylor College of Medicine) gives advice on planning your funding applications; Dr Peter Gorsuch (runs MSC Scientific Editing, which offers Nature-standard editing and advice to researchers worldwide on their grant applications and research manuscripts) will talk about shaping the content for your application to catch the reviewer’s attention; Dr Alejandro Martin-Hobdey (Head of Unit for Call and Project Follow-up Coordination, European Research Council) will share insights into getting a grant from the European Research Council and Dr Michael Mishkind (programme director in the Symbiosis, Defense and Self-recognition program in the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems at the National Science Foundation) will talk about how to be successful in their applications.
After their presentations all participants will have an opportunity to take part in a live Q&A session, where you can ask any of the speakers your funding related questions.
