H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships


MCSA Individual Fellowships are for two years and involve joining an established research group in the Department. The scheme is open to applicants moving from within Europe or those wishing to return to Europe; the scheme covers all research areas. There are no restrictions based on nationality, age or career stage but applicants need to have a PhD, or 4 years full time research experience at the call deadline. Further details of eligibility can be found on the funder website. An academic (faculty) member of the Department will be needed to act as host so if you are interested in applying please contact the person whose group you would wish to join to discuss your proposed application with them and confirm their support for your application. NB this department only supports European Fellowships, not the Global Fellowship scheme.

The funding provides an allowance towards living, travel and family costs; further details are available on the funder website.

Applications are made via the EU's participant portal.
