  1. Hello TNP,

    I’m a beginning/junior researcher in the fields of health and environment. (I think struggling researcher would be the word! 🙂 )
    Recently, I passed a research proposal to a japan-based funding institution and was wondering if I (along with a research partner) would have a chance to be funded. It’s competitve- so we’re crossing our fingers we would get it… Second, while doing the one word meme- I was thinking of a research topic for another research proposal (aimed at junior researchers). So, I’m trying my luck and see if things would turn out pretty well.

  2. Hi TNP- it would be a one year research (for the Japan funded proposal). If we do get funded, the work will be divided between me and my research partner. Their will be fieldwork and a lot of writing. I wanted to go into research because you have a command of your time. You can pay assistant researchers to do the fieldwork (with your supervision) with the rest of the workload to be done at home. Although it would require time to write research reports, it would still give me ampful time to play with danielle since I would be home most of the time. It’s still in the category of part-time work.

    If you are in the academe, it’s a requirement that you stay connected with the research world. I’ve done short-term researches before but never a one-year research yet. So- I’m wishing and hoping- this will push through.
