About this talk

As they progress from being students to independent scholars, early-career researchers face challenges from high workloads and long hours, “publish or perish” pressures, tenure track requirements, administrative workloads and decreasing grant proposal success rates. Since 1982, NIH grants to principal investigators under the age of 46 have dropped steadily, per research published in 2017 by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This trend has dire impacts not only for basic research but also for science as a profession in the US. Multiple studies show that researchers’ future funding can depend on whether or not they had early-career grant success early in their careers; moreover, research also shows that early-career grant-winners were also 50% more likely to become a professor than were the ones who failed to qualify. Join us for a webinar to share services, solutions and strategies supporting early-career researchers’ discovery of funding opportunities—how to find them, and how to maximize proposal success.
