Scientists are customarily asked to submit a “Statement of Research”. This is meant to be a 2-4 page statement of past, current, and future research interests. You should describe your past and present research methodology, lab skills, and results. For the future section, tell the reader what you hope to do for the next 3- 5 years and how you might involve students (undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs) in the work. Normally, this work will follow on the momentum of your own postdoctoral studies, but if it does not (this would be rare) be sure to explain why.
In the amount of $2,500, the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Scholarship is presented every year by the Horror Writers Association (HWA) for deserving female student members in good standing who are pursuing a degree or certificate related to creative writing.
