I recently missed out on getting a great and pretty important scholarship, would’ve made my career post-PhD heaps easier and made my actual PhD research much more achievable without worrying too much about the dollars. How do you (as MCR’s) deal with missing out on important (or vital) grant applications/ fellowships etc.? Also do you have any tips on how to prepare well for an interview where you just talk about your work? I really struggled to sell my research to the interviewers, and I even had maps!
Thanks for making such a great science based podcast, some great advice on navigating the world during and beyond PhD life!
