Tasks include: assistance with writing and copy-editing all parts of the applications; consultation, correspondence and communication with applicant, co-applicants, collaborators, and partner organizations; communication with Office of Research Services; collecting and completing CV’s, bibliography, and support letters; accompanying the applicant to meetings with possible co-applicants and partner organizations; arranging meetings (room booking, food services ordering, preparation of agenda, taking minutes of meetings); project management (keeping track of missing pieces in application, following up with co-applicants and collaborators, assisting co-applicants collaborators in completing their online forms).
