Careers at Aalto

Claudia Dell’Era, Grant Writer

I have always enjoyed writing, but the best thing about my job is the opportunity to work in cooperation with our excellent researchers.

'I have worked at Aalto since 2003 – first as a project researcher, then as a doctoral candidate and now as a grant writer in Research and Innovation Services.

In my work, I help researchers and professors draw up applications for research funding. I support them throughout the application process from finding suitable funding opportunities to commenting on research plans and writing them.

Writing has always been my passion and I enjoy working with texts. However, the best thing about my job is definitely the opportunity to work in cooperation with our excellent researchers, to get to know their research ideas and to support them in the development of those ideas into projects - while taking advantage of my own background as a researcher.'
