The 2019 call for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) is now open, with a deadline of 11 September 2019.
As regular readers of the Blog will be aware, this is a prestigious scheme which provides the opportunity to bring talented post-doctoral researchers (or those with equivalent research experience) to Manchester Met to undertake a programme of research and personal development. Typical fellowships will last for 24 months, and there are options to support those returning to research after a period away, as well as those returning to the EU to re-establish their research careers in EU organisations.
Researchers are able to develop their programme of research in any field, and fellowships can also provide an opportunity to experience life outside academia, with secondments in industry, the public sector or charitable organisations all possible.
The Guide for Applicants for the call is available here, and is essential reading for anyone wishing to apply.
In order to ensure that we can give you the best support for your MSCA IF applications, we are asking for colleagues to notify RKE as soon as possible if you have a prospective fellowship (firstname.lastname@example.org).
