Coming up: Postdoctoral fellowships and funding

The next live #ECRchat is Thursday 16th October at 20:00-21:00 in the UK (BST), which is 21:00-22:00 in Europe (CEST) and 15:00-16:00 in New York (EDT). This chat will be hosted by Charlotte Mathieson (@cemathieson)

This week’s chat will be on the topic of postdoctoral fellowships and funding schemes. It’s approaching the time of year when many will be getting postdoc applications underway – often in the knowledge that such schemes are fiercely competitive. In this chat we can discuss the various schemes available, what happens in the application process and how to strengthen your application, dealing with the high rejection rate and building on feedback, and any other  issues you’d like to raise or questions you may have.
