Proposal Writing Workshop

Jobs, Grants and Facilities

A proposal writing workshop for students, postdocs and ECRs

ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) aims to ultimately produce a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and energy in the Universe from shortly after the Big Bang to the present day. ASTRO 3D merges world-leading Australian and international optical, infrared and radio telescope technologies with sophisticated theoretical simulations and ambitious new big data analysis techniques to open a new realm in astrophysics – a 3D understanding of the origins of the Universe and our place within it. Through the Centre, the next generation of scientific leaders will be trained within a cohesive, national and international framework that includes cutting edge science and data intensive infrastructure, nationwide and worldwide collaborations, leading equity and diversity programs, and large-scale public education and outreach programs.

As part of the ASTRO 3D commitment to training the next generation of scientific leaders, we are offering a series of writing workshops. Jobs, Grants and Facilities is a series of one-day interactive workshops where students, postdocs, and ECRs receive advice from experts in the field, dedicated writing time to work on proposal drafts, and one-on-one feedback sessions from experienced successful proposal writers.

Attendees must be ready with a job application, grant, or proposal draft or (at minimum) a proposal outline prior to attending the workshop. Breakout sessions are scheduled each day to review and discuss successful proposals.
