To have a successful career in science, you must be able to convince strangers to give you enormous sums of money. Unfortunately, many scientists miss the mark and write terrible research proposals. Dr. Damon Diehl is determined to change that and make reviewers’ jobs more difficult by arming early-career scientists and engineers with the tools they need to craft compelling grant proposals. His book, Grant Writing from the Ground Up, offers a step-by-step process for proposals that rise to the top of a reviewer’s stack.
On this episode of the Forward Faster podcast, author Dr. Damon Diehl discusses his background working with scientists and engineers, his motivation for creating a resource for stronger grant proposals, and what readers can expect from his new book.
