Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships are now open for submission.
Researchers from any age, nationality and discipline with a doctoral degree and a maximum of 8 years of full-time research experience who wish to enhance their creative and innovative potential while acquiring new skills through advanced training and mobility are encouraged to apply.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions aim to foster excellence through mobility, therefore researchers are requested to carry out the fellowship in a country in which they have not resided or carried out their main activity for more than 12 months in the previous three years. Researchers must take into consideration such mobility rule when applying for a host institution.
The scheme also encourages researchers to work on research and innovation projects in the non-academic sector and is open to researchers wishing to reintegrate in Europe, to those who are displaced by conflict, as well as to researchers with high potential who are seeking to restart their careers in research.
Postdoctoral Fellowships either can take place in Europe (i.e. in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country) or in a Third Country not associated to Horizon Europe:
- European Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to researchers of any nationality who wish to engage in R&I projects by either coming to Europe from any country in the world or moving within Europe. The standard duration of these fellowships must be between 12 and 24 months.
- Global Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to European nationals or long-term residents who wish to engage in R&I projects with organisations outside EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries. These fellowships require an outgoing phase of minimum 12 and maximum 24 months in a non-associated Third Country, and a mandatory 12-month return phase to a host organisation based in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country.
