BES early career researcher grant writing workshop

BES-logo-generalEarly Career Researchers’ Grant Writing Workshop
7 November 2016
British Ecological Society, London
Our Early Career Working Group has organised a workshop on grant-writing for 30 early-career ecologists (early postdoctoral level) planning to submit an independent fellowship or grant proposal as named postdoc in the near future.
The workshop will include best practice and tailored support focused on converting a project idea into a grant or fellowship application. Participants will hear from ecologists in early and later career stages who are recipients of fellowships and experienced in reviewing & assessing applications, representing multiple research organisations and funding sources.
By the end of the workshop, delegates will have gained detailed insight into the grant writing process. and will leave feeling confident they have the knowledge and ability to submit an application.
Speakers:
Prof. Helen Roy (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology)
Dr Barbara Tigar (Liverpool Hope University)
Dr Iain Stott (University of Southern Denmark)
Dr Jennifer Rowntree (University of Manchester)
Dr Maria Olalla Lorenzo-Carballa (University of Coruna)
Programme:
– Plenaries from experienced grant recipients who are also experienced in reviewing & assessing applications
