The MSCA programme offers highly competitive and attractive salary and working conditions. The successful candidates will receive a salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers. Exact salary will be confirmed upon appointment by the Enrolling Institution. Each full-time enrolled ESR will be entitled to receive Living, Mobility and Family (if eligible) allowances. In parallel, the hosting institution will benefit of unit costs: Research, Training and Network costs, and Management and Overheads costs.

In addition to their individual research projects, all fellows will benefit from further continuing education, which includes internships and secondments, a variety of training modules as well as transferable skills courses and active participation in SAFERUP! events. The approximate gross salary is subject to employers statutory deductions and the amount varies according to the living costs of the host country.

____________________________________________________

Eligibility criteria

Mobility Rule:

- At the time of recruitment, the researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment.

- Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.

Early-Stage Researchers:

ESR Candidates must be, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and have NOT yet been awarded a PhD. This is measured from the date when they obtained the Degree that would formally entitle them to embark on a PhD.

The candidates must hold a Degree in one of the SAFERUP! relevant fields, by the date of the call deadline.

Further specific requirements and restrictions set by hosting countries and institutions are listed in each Job Description.

Only the eligible candidates will be evaluated.

The interview to assert the skills, the motivation and the fluency in English, will take place at the host institution or, for those candidates who are not able to travel, by internet connection. The candidates will be ranked according to both their records and the interview. The candidate at the highest ranking position will be offered the position. If, for any reason, the selected candidate will decline the offer or will fail to comply with the requirements for enrolment in the position, the one following in the list will be selected.
