Are you a post-doc or experienced researcher and would you like to expand your research experience with a stay in a foreign group? Are you ready for a new challenge and an international career? Do you want to broaden your network and mature as an independent researcher? Maybe the Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships will be of interest to you.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships provide funding for individual researchers, allowing them to diversify and broaden their scientific knowledge and skills. They are international fellowships, meaning you must move (or have moved) to a different country.
The Dutch National Contact Point for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) will explain the possibilities and participation modalities of the MSCA Individual Fellowships during an information session on Tuesday 9 May, in Utrecht. You will be able to ask questions to the advisors of these programmes and receive tips and tricks for writing a successful proposal. An MSCA evaluator will share her experiences. Also, the national funding scheme Rubicon for recently graduated scientists will be presented.
The call for individual Marie Skłodowska- Curie fellowships will be published on 11 April 2017, with a deadline on 14 September 2017. If the proposal is funded, the fellowship can start at the earliest in the spring of 2018.
For whom is this information session intended?
- Individual researchers who have (almost) completed their PhD or have at least 4 years of full-time research experience after graduation, and who are considering a post-doc in a foreign group.
- Universities, research organisations or companies who want to hire foreign researchers for a period of research training/knowledge transfer, or who want more information to pass on to the researchers of their own organisation.
- Please use this registration form.
