For more than 3 years, I worked as a grants manager for the European Commission within a French non-profit organization. I was working both with Universities/Research centers and businesses, helping them to apply to EU-funded grants. In summer of 2022, my husband and I moved to the US for my husband’s job and I had to find a new job myself. I wanted to keep working in the grants field and applied for a research administrator’s position at Tulane University. It’s been a year now, and I love my job! It is so interesting to compare grants funding mechanisms in the EU and in the US, and I love working so close with faculty.
