PostDoc Training to Develop and Win Research Proposals

01 Feb 2023

The C-DICE sandpit is a unique development activity for postdoctoral researchers to learn how to write quality research proposals and win £30K to do the research.

The topic for the next sandpit, organised in partnership with The Association for Decentralised Energy, is about decarbonising fossil fuel-dependent industrial sites. This sandpit will enable postdocs to create a research proposal on the barriers and opportunities to alternative energy sources for dispersed industry and inform policy for a net zero future.

Research proposals emerging from the sandpit may include technological or policy-based approaches. Postdocs working in STEM subjects are encouraged to take part, but we also welcome those with expertise in energy systems, energy resilience, energy policy and economics from other subject areas. All are welcome!

Dates and how to apply: The deadline for applications is 23 February 2023. The sandpit will take place online, in March. More details about the sessions and mode of delivery can be found here.
