w00t! Part 2

Remember my stressful February, in which I worked on five grants that were submitted to the same competition - writing large parts of two of them - and helped with another three grants for a second competition that closed a couple of days later?

Well, all five in the first category got at least partial funding! I am now six for six when working on grant submissions from my department. Two out of the other three were also funded, but since "my" PIs were relatively minor co-applicants/collaborators, I didn't do much other than provide CVs and proof reading services.

A very welcome boost to my ego as we approach the next set of multiple submissions to two separate and very important competitions...

  5. w00t! That is awesome!!! Sounds like you have a pretty damn good argument for them renewing funding for your position, eh? :-)

  6. Thanks both! Yes, this is a good argument in my favour! If I can do well in next year's equivalent competition then the results will come through a couple of months before my contract is up.

    I am keeping a scorecard of all grants, my contributions to them, and the outcome, in an Excel file that I guard with my life! Gotta look out for myself!
