Post by Nicola Haines to the Researcher's Network:
Aspiring European Research Council Starting Grant applicants might be interested in a talk from Dr Jessica Meyers (University of Leeds) taking place on Friday 9 October 5pm, Milldam LE0.6. Jessica’s research interests lie at the intersection of the histories of gender, warfare and medicine, with a focus on British masculinities during and after the First World War. Jessica was recently awarded an ERC Staring Grant to explore the gendering of formal and informal caregiving in Britain in the aftermath of the First World War. Jessica will speak about the process of making her application. If you’re wondering what you need to do to be in a position to compete for a Starting Grant, especially as an arts/hums/social sciences researcher, come along and hear from someone who’s done it already.
