Mentoring Scheme for Postdocs
A reminder that a Mentoring Scheme for Postdocs is now running across the univeristy. For more details, to apply or register your interest please view the Mentoring for Research Staff web pages
Biology Research Committee offers a limited number of research grants to post-doctoral researchers with at least one year of post-doctoral experience. The grants will provide a stipend for a penultimate year undergraduate summer student for up to 10 weeks, along with a modest consumables budget, to carry out a research project of the RA's devising and under the supervision of the RA. The aim of the scheme is to give RAs experience in grant applications, project management and supervision of staff, as well as to allow them to begin to develop an independent line of research. If you are interested in this scheme, contact your line manager who will be able to mentor you through the process as appropriate. The maximum amount that can be applied for is £3,500 which should include the student stipend of £220 per week.
As part of the application, PIs must sign to say they are willing to have the student in their lab, under the supervision of the RA and working on a project of the RA's devising.
See departmental communication for application deadline, usually around March.
