Title: Post Doc and Grant Writing Workshop
Speaker: Stephanie Solt
After a Ph.D., the next step in an academic career is often a position as a postdoctoral researcher. This professional development workshop is intended to provide students in linguistics with advice and guidance towards finding and getting the most out of a post doc. In the first part, we will survey the sorts of post docs available, including both advertised positions as well as grants for individual fellowships for postdoctoral research. A particular focus will be opportunities in Europe, where funding by organizations such as the German Science Foundation (DFG) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) supports a wide range of positions and grants in both formal and experimental linguistics. The second part of the workshop will focus on practical guidelines for identifying and successfully applying for post doc positions, as well as grant writing for postdoctoral research fellowships.
