You have a PhD or 4 years of research experience and you are looking to enhance your career development and prospects by working abroad? An MSCA Individual fellowship may be your solution.
The Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA aim to equip researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or private sector. The applicant researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the call deadline.
What does it fund?
The grant usually covers two year’s salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution.
