When I look around, most of the funding opportunities in computer science require a PhD to hold.
Now, I have finished the courses part of my doctoral school and have a reviewed research proposal. Are there funding bodies that allow to apply for a grant to work solely on my journal papers and dissertation for a year?
I think I could make an advance, not having to teach classes what I otherwise do for a living.
I work in the EU.
Is this highly unusual, or there are organisations who would support this?
