In which we talk with the brilliantly undefinable Merlin Mann for his amazing insight, advice, and dissection of the areas of productivity, motivation, and just trying to get there. As he tackles our questions, we get a dose of some classic Merlin-Maning.
A brief insight into what the funding process is like for Starting and Consolidator grant applicants, once you click submit!
Last week I took the opportunity to go to Brussels to visit the ERC HQ. It’s a beautiful building in the centre of the city, and although surrounded by building works on the outside, it’s rather tranquil and green on the inside.
But, my job wasn’t to assess the interior design of ERC HQ. Instead, I was there to find out what happens to a starting or consolidator grant application once you hit submit.
http://www.nature.com/multimedia/podcast/naturejobs/naturejobs-2015-06-25.mp3In this podcast you will hear Professor Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, the ERC president, on why he’s so keen to help early career researchers. I also speak to Alejandro (Alex) Martin, who heads up the call co-ordination team, which organises the whole evaluation process from the arrival to the final evaluation that creates the ranking list. This list determines who gets what funding. He gives a sneak peak into how the panels evaluate candidates and what they are keen to assess.
I got to meet Iva Tolić and Veerle Huvenne, two really interesting and enthusiastic scientists who wanted to share their ERC grant application stories. Veerle is in the final year of her Starting Grant, and Iva has just received the 5000th Consolidator Grant from the ERC.
This podcast also acts as a sneak preview for our first FREE Naturejobs webcast, scheduled to happen on September 30th 2015. We’ve got 4 great speakers lined up for you, ready to share their insights and experiences on how to put together your application in order for you to maximize your chances of getting funded. So, keep your eyes on the blog!

ALERT. John Gruber is one of the world’s foremost experts on Apple. Josh is one of the world’s foremost experts on experts. Unsurprisingly, things get very nerdy when Josh and John sit down to discuss the past, present, and future of the company, as well as how it compares to the competition. But don’t worry — Woodrow Wilson, James Bond, and the New York Yankees all pop up in the discussion as well. You’ve been warned.
