MSCA Post Doc Fellowships

In May 2021, CIVIS members launched an initiative to facilitate the collaborations between researchers and supervisors within the framework of the Marie Sklodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships.  

Supervisors of any research field were invited to express their interest to host a MSCA researcher by registering in the CIVIS database. The process resulted in identifying almost 1000 supervisors. 

Researchers from any age, nationality and discipline with a doctoral degree, a maximum of 8 years of full-time research experience and who have not resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the beneficiary for more than 12 months in the previous three years are encouraged to explore the database in search for a potential supervisor. 

Find out more about the CIVIS3i project or apply for one of the 16 fellowships in the first call.

The CIVIS3i management team is organizing weekly Q&A sessions in the running to the application deadline (22 October 2021). These online sessions will be held every Tuesday 10-12 am and Thursday 3-5 pm. Join here.
