Supporting early-career researchers
At The Company of Biologists we value early-career researchers and want to support you as you develop your career.
On these pages we highlight the range of resources that we offer to early-career researchers, including grants and fellowships, workshops, meetings, peer review mentoring, internships and first-author interviews.

Fellowships and grants
Where could your research take you? We offer Travelling Fellowships to early-career researchers to make collaborative visits to other laboratories.
Our journals also offer grants aimed at early career scientists wanting to attend scientific meetings, conferences, workshops and courses relating to the areas of research covered by the journal.
The Workshops hosted by The Company of Biologists bring together experts and early-career researchers from a diverse range of scientific backgrounds. The programmes are carefully developed to lay the foundations for the important scientific advances that will define the future careers of early-career researchers.
At each Workshop we reserve 10 places out of the total of 30 for ECRs, and these places are provided for free.
What can we do for you? How can you make sure your article reaches a wider audience? What can you do to promote yourself? Find out more about how you can get involved in one of our early-career initiatives.
