Beginner’s Guide to Grant Writing

If you want to continue in science after your Ph.D. you will likely compete sooner or later in calls for personal grants and program grants. To be ready to be truly competitive in these calls, you should have a strong CV and a fantastic plan to work on, and should have initiated contacts with the professor you would like to work with. All these requirements cannot be met if you start working on them only after handing in your thesis manuscript.

Today’s lecture will deal with the career ladder in academia, what grants are about and what grant agencies are and what they want, what a strong CV for your personal grant entails, and when to start with what – among others. There will be ample time for you to ask those questions you always wanted to ask but just didn’t get to until now.
