Early Career Researcher Training Grant
Memorial Deadline: No RGCS review required
External Deadline: Monday 23rd, November 2020
Applications are open for the new ACU Early Career Researcher (ECR) Training Grants. 10 grants are available to fund staff at ACU member universities to organise and deliver training for their early career researchers, including Doctoral candidates. The training will equip researchers with essential skills to enable them to succeed in their careers, whether they remain in academia or utilise their skills in other professional fields.
This activity is part of the ACU Supporting Research Community’s main strategic aims to help the development of early career researchers across the Commonwealth. The Supporting Research Community is a forum for all staff at ACU member universities who are involved in supporting the research process, including research management and administration, research impact and uptake, and library services. Researchers at all levels are also welcome to join.
Who can apply?
Research offices staff at ACU member universities, or any other staff member who leads on providing training for early career researchers, can apply. Universities can use their internal criteria of what defines an ECR, but this must include Doctoral candidates, and the training must be made available to ECRs from multiple disciplines.
Skills which are in scope of the training are:
- presentation skills
- time management
- public engagement and communicating with non-academic audiences
- media training
- social media
- relationship/stakeholder management
- grant writing
- career training, including doctoral careers outside higher education
Additional information can be found at The Association of Commonwealth Universities website.
