Norwegian Research Schools: Academic Career Development
Following last year’s successful collaboration of NFR-funded Norwegian Research Schools in our Academic Career Development workshop, we are happy to announce this year’s sequel at UiO on Thursday June 21st.
Building your academic CV and writing successful project proposals
To successfully continue with an academic career there are many specific skills you will need to acquire and common pitfalls to avoid. How can you succeed with your project proposals, how to find that right project idea and what is important to remember, already during your PhD, when it comes to developing your CV? Join our academic career course and start thinking about the next steps in your academic career early on.
During our academic career course you will learn:
- What to consider when applying for funding
- How to build up your academic CV
- The role of mobility and international networks in your career
- How to plan and draft a proposal (where to start, how to structure, how the reviewers are making their decisions)
- Technical proposal-writing techniques
