The Martí i Franquès COFUND Doctoral Fellowships Programme (MFP) is a redesign of the existing MF programme, offering 100 doctoral contracts (in four editions: 2017, 2018 and 2020, 2021) at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV). The programme is uniquely shaped to offer the best training stemming from the "triple i" principles of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions: international, interdisciplinary and intersectorial.
In order to achieve these goals, we combine leading research groups at URV with scientific partners from world-class institutions, such that the candidates are be exposed to interdisciplinary training as well as mentoring from the industrial sector.
The first 31 places of the programme have now been announced with the aim to attract talented researchers from all over the world and give them the chance to have a research career at the URV.
The contracts they will sign are aligned with standard Marie-Curie contracts, which are a substantial improvement in terms of contractual conditions. Among other eligibility criteria, the applicants cannot have lived in Spain for more than 12 months during the previous 3 years. That is to say, the idea is to find international students with a master’s degree or equivalent or Spanish researchers who have been abroad and wish to return.
The positions are based on individual projects encompassing all areas of research at URV: Sciences, Health Sciences, Arts and Humanities, Engineering, Social and Legal Sciences.
Deadline: 15 November, 2020
Through MFP, URV is in a unique position to offer the best conditions for doctoral training, based on the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, as well as the EU Principles for Innovative Doctorate Training.
