The Institute of Physics invites you to attend our workshop, Navigating the Funding Landscape, on Wednesday 28 October, 10am - 3pm. Venue: Buswells Hotel 27 Molesworth St, Dublin 2, Ireland.
This event launches a new guide to Physics funding from the IOP. It has been written for researchers who are currently working towards a PhD or on fixed-term postdoctoral research contracts, with a focus on funding for travel, career development and fellowships. Building a track record of getting funding, even for small amounts, at the start of your career teaches you how to convince people to support your ideas and ambitions; more importantly it demonstrates your initiative, independence and drive – boosting your broader employability whatever your ultimate career destination.
You will hear first-hand from researchers who have been awarded funding, senior academics who review proposals, and representatives from the organisations which develop and manage research funding schemes.
These expert speakers will share advice for early career researchers and help you to
Identify the best funding for your career stage and ideas
Understand what funders expect and need to see in applications
Write convincing applications
React positively to reviewers
Perform strongly at interview
The event will also be an opportunity to network with other early career physicists and the speakers and to learn more about other IOP support. Please come armed with the questions you have about funding – this is an ideal opportunity to learn from experts.
Lunch and refreshment will be available throughout the day.
