The opening and closing date of the 2021 call for the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA) are projected to be mid-May and mid-September 2021 respectively (subject to approval) - many European institutions have already started to cast their nets to catch the best international research talent!
Over 200 European institutions have already published calls on the EURAXESS portal for Expressions of Interest inviting candidates to apply for an MSCA-PF with the support of their institution.
What is a MSCA PF?
The Marie-Skłodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA PF) is a post-doc training programme in which the post-doc (fellow) gains additional skills and abilities working on a specific research project in a new environment, while also transferring their knowledge within their new institution. MSCA-PFs are carried out in Europe. Open to all fields of research, the fellowship is a well-defined, 2 year, career stage.
