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 are just what you need!
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 Fellowship during an information session on Thursday 17 May, in Utrecht. You will be able to ask questions to the advisors for this programme and receive tips and tricks for writing a successful proposal.
The call for individual Marie Skłodowska- Curie fellowships will be published on 12 April 2018 with a deadline on 12 September 2018. If the proposal is funded, the fellowship can start at the earliest in the spring of 2019.
For whom is this info 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.
