European Commission: First call for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions 2021 open

Oct 12, 2021

The European Commission has opened the calls for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships 2021.
 
There are 2 types of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

  • European Postdoctoral Fellowships. They are open to researchers moving within Europe or coming to Europe from another part of the world to pursue their research career. These fellowships take place in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country and can last between 1 and 2 years. Researchers of any nationality can apply.

  • Global Postdoctoral Fellowships. They fund the mobility of researchers outside Europe. The fellowship lasts between 2 to 3 years, of which the first 1 to 2 years will be spent in a non-associated Third Country, followed by a mandatory return phase of 1 year to an organisation based in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country. Only nationals or long-term residents of the EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries can apply.

Researchers interested in PFs

  • should have a Ph.D. degree at the time of the deadline for applications. Applicants who have successfully defended their doctoral thesis but who have not yet formally been awarded the doctoral degree will also be considered eligible to apply

  • must have a maximum of eight years experience in research, from the date of the award of their PhD degree, years of experience outside research and career breaks will not count towards the above maximum, nor will years of experience in research in third countries, for nationals or long-term residents of EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries who wish to reintegrate to Europe

  • should comply with mobility rules: they must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the beneficiary (for European Postdoctoral Fellowships), or the host organisation for the outgoing phase (for Global Postdoctoral Fellowships) for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before the call deadline

If you are interested in applying for a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship, please contact the EU Office at Kiel University at euoffice@uv.uni-kiel.de before starting to prepare your proposal.

Deadline for applications: Oktober 12, 2021, 17:00 Uhr Brussel time.
