I am postdoc in computational biology field and writing one grant proposal. One of the section of the application expect applicant to show
how he/she will reach maturity to become an independent researcher?
This further expect me to show 'leadership' quality and should be supported by content from my CV. How shall I write this section?
I found this answer which suggests some points for the developed researcher looking for permanent position. At my current (early career) stage, I do NOT have any of following,
Having written and administered a grant proposal Having been invited to sit on a review panel Having been an invited speaker Having organized a conference session Having published a review paper
I have only mentored few students (but don't have any proof). Any suggestion?
