I'm applying for an early career fellowship in the UK. The fellowship has a budget of up to £6k per year for research expenses to further the fellow's research activities, which must be requested upfront. Other than travel to conferences, small equipment, and perhaps organising a workshop, does anyone have any good ideas about what this money might be spent on?
The following list is very subject dependent, but some items you might want to include are:
- High Performance Computing time (e.g. comp-sci, physics, maths, chemistry etc)
- Lab or equipment hire costs
- Research technician time (i.e someone who might help acquire data or do some other more routine tasks)
- The all-encompassing "computer-consumables" (that covers quite a lot)
