Proposal writing is an essential skill for a postdoc, especially if you are planning to stay in academia. Successful grant proposal can open many doors for you. Receiving a K99 award greatly increases your chance in securing a faculty position. These programs are also highly competitive, with success rates around 20-30%.

We hope this workshop can provide you the tools to write a successful proposal. The speakers, David States, Carrie Partch and Jordan Ward, will discuss:

What types of grants are available to postdocs/ How to structure your paragraphs and sections/ How to convey your science/ How to apply for K99… and any topics you are interested in.

This event is sponsored by UCSC units: MCD, METX, PB Sci Division, Chemistry, BME, and Dovetail Genomics.
