I usually plan beyond what I am doing now.
Here is my long term goal. Becoming an awardee of
Georg Forster Research Fellowship (HERMES)
I have specific expected institution in Germany to conduct my research. There are two opportunities for this fellowship: Postdoctoral Fellowship and Experienced Researcher Fellowship. I plan to apply for postdoctoral fellowship around November/December 2017 that is within the period of my PhD thesis writing. If I will not get the postdoctoral position in the nearly end period of my PhD, I will surely apply this fellowship.
I will definitely grab this fellowship someday. Insya Allah 🙂
