In preparation for the call for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships, our colleagues at UKRO (the UK National Contact Point for MSCAs) have announced details of an information event in London on 25 April 2018.
The event is free of charge, and you can find out more and register here.
There will be another event announced soon which will take place at another UK location in May (Ed – keep an eye on the Blog for details).
MSCA Individual Fellowships
The MSCA Individual Fellowships can support researchers to pursue a fellowship at Manchester Met for up to two years full time (Ed – there are now part time options too). The scheme targets individuals with a PhD or equivalent full time research experience. It is open to researchers in any discipline who have spent less than 12 months of the past three years in the UK. The next call for proposals will open on 12 April 2018, with a deadline of 12 September 2018.
Internal funding available – Early Career Fellowship Scheme
For those of you considering making an application with a fellow, you may also be interested in the RKE Early Career Fellowship Scheme, which is currently open for applications. The scheme can provide up to £500 to support your prospective fellow to come to Manchester Met to work on their application with you. The deadline for applications is 25 April 2018, and you can find information on how to apply and the application form here.
Manchester Met information session
Finally, following on from previous years, we are in the process of planning an information session of our own at Manchester Met. So we can get an idea of interest, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in attending.
