The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions offer a great option for experienced researchers looking to give their career a boost by working abroad. They offer exciting new learning opportunities and a chance to add some sparkle to the CV. The BIPS is hosting Post-Doc Fellows within the Marie Curie Fellowship Program with Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF).
MSCA Individual Fellowships offer attractive funding for post-doctoral projects in and outside of Europe. Interested postdoctoral researchers should show profound interests in the fields of prevention research and epidemiology. They also should be interested in working interdisciplinary on the research priorities in the departments.
Applicants need a doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience by the time of the call deadline. All research areas can be funded. MSCA Fellows come from a wide variety of disciplines – from physics to linguistics, and from health-sciences to mathematical modelling. The grant provides an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. In addition, the EU contributes to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project. The grant is awarded to the host organisation, usually a university, research centre or a company in Europe.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions were established by the European Commission to promote, among other things, transnational and intersectoral mobility and career development of researchers and to increase the attractiveness of scientific careers. Since 2014, MSCA actions are funded through the Framework Program for Research and Innovation "Horizon 2020".
