The British Society for Middle Eastern Studies (BRISMES) and the Council for British Research in the Levant (CBRL) are pleased to announce the first in a series of co-organised annual mentoring events for our members. Targeting postgraduate students and early career researchers, these on-line events will offer practical advice and support from subject specialists, equipping the next generation of Middle East scholars with the insights needed to get ahead in their research and careers.
October’s mentoring event will focus on the topic of applying for funding and securing a post-doctoral fellowship. This event brings together five speakers from a range of disciplines and institutions who are currently either engaged in the review of academic funding opportunities for scholars of the Middle East (including post-docs), or who have already successfully secured such funding.
The event aims to offer students and early career researchers guidance and experience of the processes, strategies and best practices for securing funding in an increasingly competitive market.
This event is open to BRISMES or CBRL Members only.
