Apply to MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships

The 2023 call for postdoctoral fellowships has now opened within the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions. The deadline for applications is 13 September. The call is aimed at researchers who were awarded a doctoral degree no more than eight years ago.

Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) is an action programme within Horizon Europe that promotes research, innovation and career opportunities for researchers by providing mobility and training of doctoral students and postdocs. The focus is on mobility, both between countries and between academia and the business sector.

The call for postdoctoral fellowships has now opened, and offers funding for work in another country during a period. The call has two focuses: European postdoctoral fellowships and global postdoctoral fellowships. Both are open to researchers in all scientific fields, and the budget amounts to more than 260 million EUR. The deadline for applications is 13 September 2023.

European postdoctoral fellowship (MSCA-PF)

This is aimed at researchers who have a doctoral degree, and a maximum of eight years’ research experience after the degree award. This focus covers a move to an EU member state, or mobility within the EU, during 1–2 years.

Global postdoctoral fellowship (MSCA-GF)

This is aimed at researchers who have spent a long time in Europe or an associated country and have a residents’ permit there. This focus covers a move to a non-associated third country during 1–2 years to carry out a research project, with a return phase to an EU member state or an associated country.
