Grant Writing & Written Communication (Workshop)
Friday, February 17 | Noon–2 p.m.

Being a scientist means more than just doing exceptional research. A good scientist is also a good writer. In fact, you won’t truly be successful as a scientist until you learn to write well. You have to publish papers and apply for grants to fund your work. Your career depends on the ability to write well. Dr. Richard McGee is coming from Northwestern University to conduct his popular Grant Writing & Written Communication workshop. His advice is not only actionable and practical; it’s science-based - designed to “de-mystify” the writing process. The workshop focuses on skills you can quickly master, no matter how you view yourself as a writer, and no matter how complex and subtle the science is.

  • Date: Friday, February 17
  • Time: Noon–2 p.m. (postdoc session)
  • Sponsor: Office of Research and Sponsored Program (ORED)
