Independent research funding may be available for you to apply for during your postdoctoral appointment. There are many opportunities, both internal and external to the University. Postdoctoral grants and fellowships will introduce you to the application, award and management processes of sponsored research. Obtaining this type of funding may also benefit your mentor in leveraging existing resources. If you are interested in seeking funding for your postdoctoral research, talk with your faculty advisor.
If you identify a funding opportunity you would like to apply for, arrange to meet with the Microbiology Research Support Team to review internal requirements and gain assistance in submitting to the sponsor.
