Professor Alan Cooper (Director of the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA) reveals the secrets of writing a killer grant application.
Make sure you bring along grant ideas which you can discuss. During the workshop you will develop and dress up your ideas using the process Professor Cooper uses to take his grant applications to the next level.
You'll never go to a workshop as honest or useful as this. Find out from a grant examiner just what they look for, and what they don't bother reading. It'll be frank and fearless, but you'll learn from the best and find out what makes a successful grant application.
one of the most popular topics for ECR Network events so book early to avoid missing out. The event will be livestreamed at Australia's Science Channel - australiascience.tv
ECR Network is supported by the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia
Prof. Alan Cooper has been an Australian Research Council Federation, Future, and Laureate Fellow (2005-2010, 2011-2014, 2015-2019), during which time he has specialized in the genetic analysis of evolution, biodiversity, climate change, paleoecology and microbiomes. He built his first research group as a postdoc at the University of Oxford where he also established his first large research facility through a $3M grant from the UK Joint Infrastructure Fund (UK Government/Wellcome Trust). He was awarded a prestigious ARC Federation Fellowship in 2004, and moved to the University of Adelaide to establish the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD), the first largescale ancient DNA research centre in the Southern Hemisphere. This international standard research facility provides the specialist equipment and ultra-sterile working environment required for the study of minute traces of preserved genetic material from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of years.
