Are you interested in a two-year postdoc stay in Europe, with EU funding? EURAXESS North America is hosting a free one-hour webinar, to introduce the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF). These one-to-two-year fellowships allow you to conduct a research and training project to be carried out in Europe, and the calls are open to researchers in all fields. The MSCA-IF application deadline is September 9th, 2020, so register now to watch the live webinar and learn more before applying.
Join to hear from Dr. Geraldine Canny, Head of the Irish MSCA Office. The office is based at the Irish Universities Association and operated in partnership with the Irish Research Council.
The webinar will give information on MSCA-IF and briefly present EURAXESS services, including the EURAXESS job portal. Any open questions that remain will then be addressed in a subsequent interactive Q&A session and by participant follow-up if needed.
Space is limited, and attendance is on a first-come, first-served basis. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
