Description

We often hear statements like "You need a fellowship to move on in your career", "A fellowship is the next logical step" and "Jo took a fellowship there and then moved into a lectureship". Fellowships can certainly boost your academic research career but how do we start, write and apply?

Finally we touch on submitting that application and what to do when you are called for interview.
