Maintaining a high success rate

The Faculty offers the following general tips on improving your success rate with applications:

  • Mentoring/peer review as in advice/input from more experienced researchers
  • Internal peer review (big grants, focusing on junior staff/fellowships)
  • Practice interviews (especially fellowships)
  • Encourage PIs to allow enough time for the process, really considered and engage with admin from the start
  • Strategic fit / look at the research portfolio
  • Check that research benefits the PI, Division, SLMS
  • Raising awareness of calls for proposals, help on offer
  • Comms – about deadlines, information to make process effective and PI fully informed 1-2-1 with PI – during induction, at the beginning of the process
  • Regular workshops for all applicants
