Fit for Third-Party Funding: Opportunities and Programmes after the PhD
If you intend to pursue a scientific career after your PhD, the ability to raise third-party funding is one very important building block for your career. Dr. Maria Abad Andrade provides an overview of the major national funding agencies. The funding lines that are suitable for the career development of postdocs are presented based on their funding goals and requirements. The course provides impulses for developing your own strategy for acquiring third-party funding and practical tips on the application type, administrative steps for submitting an application and other aspects relating to the application. The workshop consists of two parts: One week before the workshop (3 November 2021) all participants will receive an input presentation for independent preparation. In an interactive session on 10 November 2021 (via Zoom) the participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the content of the presentation and their own third-party funding strategy and to exchange ideas about third-party funding.
