Research statements can be hard to write. They need to combine rigorous science with a healthy dose of self-promotion.

Françoise Chanut, senior scientific editor at Gladstone, reviews writing principles to help you pack a punch in your research statement and other components of the application package.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The dos and dont’s of research statements
  • Writing principles that improve readability and impact 
  • The elements to include in your research statement versus your cover letter or CV

This course was offered as part of Gladstone's Trainee-to-Tenure Track Program:

Organized by the Office of Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Affairs, this program aims to provide guidance to early-career scientists in their path toward academic independence and faculty positions.
