Join us for a webinar on the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF). Learn about the prestigious MSCA, which are the EU’s flagship funding program for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. The primary objective of the Postdoctoral Fellowships, previously called the Individual Fellowships, is to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. The Postdoctoral Fellowships action targets researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad, acquire new skills and develop their careers. PFs help researchers gain experience in other countries, disciplines, and non-academic sectors.
The event will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022 at 12:00 noon ET (9:00 AM PT / 6:00 PM CEST). Convert to your local time zone here. It will be held in English and is free, but registration is required.
Regardless of where you are from or where you are based, MSCA can help your research career. There are 2 types of Postdoctoral Fellowships:
- European Postdoctoral Fellowships. They are open to researchers moving within Europe or coming to Europe from another part of the world to pursue their research career. These fellowships take place in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country and can last between one and two years. Researchers of any nationality can apply.
- Global Postdoctoral Fellowships. They fund the mobility of researchers outside Europe. The fellowship lasts between two to three years, of which the first one to two years will be spent in a non-associated Third Country, followed by a mandatory return phase of one year to an organization based in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country. Only nationals or long-term residents of the EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries can apply.
