Transitioning to independence
The final session in this series will explore transitioning to independent research. There are many challenges to face when you first look to become an independent researcher but there are also many opportunities you can take advantage of.
This session will be provided by expert speaker Viki Male from Imperial College London. She will discuss how to go about your initial search, from finding an institute to choosing the right position for you, focussing on grant writing and initial funding. You will learn how to:
Prepare for transitioning, find an institute and choose a position
Write your first grant – find the right scheme and effective applications
Get started – issues around finances, hiring and acquiring licences
