Doctoral students Priyanka Chandratre, University of Keele, and Kieran Ayling, University of Nottingham, were selected to represent the School at the NIHR Research Training Camp “Developing Your Post-doctoral Career: Attracting Health Research Funding”. They write about their experiences in a SPCR blog.
Overall, the training camp was a fantastic, if intense, experience. We got an insight into the trials and tribulations of grant application writing and meeting other NIHR trainees and working closely together in such a beautiful setting was a fun and rewarding experience. There were plenty of networking opportunities over scrumptious dinners too! If you get the chance to go to something like this in the future, we’d highly recommend it! - Kieran and Priyanka
