Skills/Qualifications

All applicants must at the time of recruitment under this fellowship programme (1st of October 2018) be experienced researchers. Experienced researchers are defined by the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions as being researchers in possession of either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience (see definitions). This description covers those researchers who have been working for at least 4 years full time in research but not working on a PhD. Examples could include someone working as a research assistant in academia or industry. Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when the researcher obtained the degree entitling him/her to embark on a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited or seconded), even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged. Any parental leave periods do not count towards the time of research experience.
