Applying for Career Development Grant

Eligible: PhD student members

The GCSC career development grant allows members of the GCSC who are about to complete or have recently completed their doctoral project to develop and work on a postdoctoral research project with which they will apply for a postdoctoral position. It aims at advancing equal opportunities and considers the various personal circumstances which may influence and limit a young researcher's access to the academic work market as well as the limited representation of women in academia from the postdoctoral level upwards.
