To help you make the most of your time and hone your skills as a PhD student or Postdoc, we bring to you a webinar by Editage that will show you how you can write a high-impact manuscript and prepare a great journal submission package. Here are the details:

      2 - EMBO | IndiaBioscience Grant Writing Workshop
      Monday, 26 May, 2020 | 5:30 PM IST

      EMBO | IndiaBioscience Online Seminars

      A successful scientific career requires many skills that go beyond the topics taught in a scientific curriculum. In our shared commitment to promoting life sciences, EMBO and IndiaBioscience have joined efforts to bring to the scientific community in India online seminars to update and practice soft skills, which include communication, grant writing, publishing and scientific integrity. Our trainings are tailored specifically to the needs of researchers at early career stages and aim at improving both the quality and the quantity of research output in the medium and long term. We launched this initiative in April 2020.

      EMBO | IndiaBioscience Grant Writing Workshop

      In this Grant Writing Workshop, we set forth to impart to late-stage PhDs and Postdoctoral fellows the skills required to write a successful fellowship/grant application.

      The workshop consists of two independent parts: an open webinar (you only need to register to participate) and an assignment + closed webinar (attendance is application based).

      A more detailed overview of the two webinars is provided below.

      Webinar 1: Fundamentals of Writing Effective Grant and Fellowship Applications |18 June 3-5 PM IST

      Through the exploration of theory and examples, this webinar aims to help participants understand/look for different types of grants, develop a competitive research plan (operationalizing research questions, and aligning goals and work packages into a coherent story) and assess one’s own proposal like a grant reviewer

      Webinar 2: Advanced Topics in Grant Writing (attendance requires formal application) |10 July 3-5 PM IST

      This webinar will explore in greater depth the topics discussed in Webinar 1, adapted to the research fields and methods in the example grant proposals (in the form of assignment) submitted by the selected participants.

      There are two ways by which one can participate in this workshop:

      i. Only attend the first webinar - This is an open session and the participant only needs to register to attend the first webinar.

      ii. Attend the entire workshop and get a certificate - This is a certification workshop which consists of two webinars and an assignment. Anyone who fulfills the eligibility criteria and wishes to attend this certification workshop needs to submit a completed application before 26 May 2020, 5:30 PM IST (details are available below). Participants who complete the entire workshop (2 webinars + an assignment) will be awarded a certificate from EMBO and IndiaBioscience.
