Recently I found myself in a challenging situation
I'm from Brazil, and last week was announced a call for schorlaships abroad, including Sandwich PhD or Doctoral Stay.
I'm currently doing a PhD here. I work with phytochemistry and I think working with a experienced research group could help me with the polar extracts studies, that my group has little experience.
However, I've talked with my supervisors and they have none network with researchers abroad.
I don't want to lose this opportunity, mostly because it is a unique opportunity and one of the last in the actual government, which is actually cutting science foundings.
Said that, do you have any experience about getting in contact with researchers from abroad? And about searching for research groups and universities to study out of your country? Any tips could help, because I'm kind of lost here. My supervisor said he can't help, but he encouraged me to try.
Thank you all for any help you can give me
