The Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) seeks to support postdoctoral researchers wishing to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual European Fellowship.

We are interested in working with postdoctoral candidates who already have a strong publication record, and whose research agenda complements one or more of the institute’s areas of strength in international studies. Specifically, we are eager to support Marie Skłodowska-Curie candidates working on:

  • Security and conflict
  • Inequality and development
  • Global governance
  • EU foreign policy
  • The politics of regulation
  • The governance of diversity

Selected candidates will be supported by one or more of IBEI professors (depending on the topic of the application) to develop their proposal and application for submission to the European Commission on 12 September 2018.


What we offer

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Actions (MSCA) are prestigious fellowships funded by the European Commission. They offer a generous allowance for 1-3 years including mobility, family and research allowance. Applicants can be from any country, must hold a PhD (or equivalent), and must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Spain for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to the application deadline on 12 September 2018. More information on the MSCA can be found here. Selected candidates will regularly interact with IBEI faculty and receive detailed feedback to further strengthen their proposal and refine their MSCA application.
