Workshop: Applying for Academic Positions & Research Funding


This workshop will provide early stage researchers (PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and post-PhD
scholars) with practical guidance about how to build an international research profile, apply for
academic positions, and identify research funding opportunities.

Panellists will include academics from Europe, the USA and Canada, who have experience interviewing candidates for academic positions, and applying for and assessing applications for research funding.

The workshop will begin with brief presentations by two panels of guest speakers, after which there will be time for questions and discussion. Each of the presenters will give short talks about their work in the area of their presentation, focusing particularly on the practicalities involved. There will be ample time for questions and discussion following the presentations.

The second half of the workshop will provide delegates with an opportunity to book individual (15-minute) appointments with one of the guest speakers. These meetings will give each delegate time to discuss questions and concerns specific to her/his situation.
