Masterclass to pursue a MSCA-PF fellowship at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)

Categories: News | Funding | Norway

Are you ready to take the next step in your research career? The Norwegian

University of Life Sciences (NMBU) aims at attracting talented young

researchers by using the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral

Fellowships programme.


NMBU is a hub of expertise within life sciences, environmental

sciences and in the arena of sustainable development. NMBU hosts two

Research Excellence Centres funded by the Norwegian Research Council and

one Nordic Centre of Excellence funded by Nordic Council of Ministers.


We will offer a complete training package for MSCA-PF applicants that

intend to apply with NMBU as host institution, free of charge.


About MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships


Postdoctoral Fellowships (previously called Individual Fellowships) support the

mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as helping to

attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU or associated

countries. The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility

allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution.

Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with

their planned host organisation. Proposals are judged on their research

quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the support

offered by the host organisation. All research areas can be funded and

MSCA Fellows come from a wide variety of disciplines


The 2021 Call is expected to open on 15. April 2021 with a deadline of 15. September 2021.
