I am applying for a postdoctoral fellowship at an American University and I have to submit the research proposal. Besides the usual description of my own research, it is written that I must describe the

resources necessary to conduct the project and an informed evaluation of resource availability.

What does this exactly mean?

"Resources" generally means "money, and things that cost money". So:

  • What resources do you need in order to carry out your research? This could include equipment, staff, students, travel funding, software, computers, books, use of specialized facilities, etc, etc.

  • How are you planning to get those resources and/or the money to pay for them? Applying for external grants, sharing with collaborators, internal university funding, etc?

It asks you to define or list the resources needed for the project and show that you have considered where those resources may be obtained.
