SCIENCE INNOVATION, ENGAGEMENT AND PARTNERSHIPS
Dr KAELI JOHNSON
Grant Development Manager
Grants and International Programmes
Kaeli provides editorial and technical grant support tailored to individual researchers working at Rothamsted Research. Her work has two key aims: to make the grant-writing process easier for researchers, and to improve the quality and effectiveness of grant applications put forward by the institute. She is responsible for identifying strategic funding opportunities and helping to align applications to funder priorities. With a background in plant genetics and molecular biology, Kaeli is able to advise on the scientific content of grant proposals and can provide guidance on how to successfully communicate complex ideas to non-specialists. She checks proposals for eligibility, fit-to-call scope and overall clarity, ensuring that applications are accurately completed. She also offers administrative support relating to funders' submission systems, has oversight of grant submission records for the institute and handles general funding queries.
