19 Oct 2010 12:30pm - 2:00pm CRASSH seminar room


This session is aimed at postdoctoral researchers in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. It is designed to help researchers who are thinking about applying for an individual research grant or fellowship. It will also cover information which more experienced researchers who are new to Cambridge and/or the UK should find useful.

The session will focus on how to find out what your prospective funder wants from applicants by highlighting three different sources of information and advice here in Cambridge: your colleagues, your Department or Faculty and the Research Office. We will look at common problems which first-time applicants encounter and provide information about how funding applications are handled within Cambridge so that you can manage your time effectively.

Although we are not going to cover relevant funding schemes in detail, there will be information you can take away about funders who have grants which are specifically targeted towards postdoctoral researchers.

Participants include:

Professor Philip Allmendinger, Land Economy
Anna Nerukh, Research Office
Louise Balshaw, Research Grants Administrator, MML
Angela Cattermole, Research Grants Administrator, School of Arts and Humanities

Snack lunch provided. Please use the link on the right to book for the session via the Careers Service website (requires Raven login), so that we can provide enough sandwiches.
