MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF)
closing date on 12/10/2021.
The goal of this programme is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers wishing to diversify their individual skills through training and advanced international and intersectoral mobility.
There are two types of Individual Fellowships:
European Postdoctoral Fellowships: individual grants for researchers coming to or moving within Europe (Member State or Associated Country).
Global Postdoctoral Fellowships s: individual grants for researchers going to a Third Country, with a return phase in Europe (Member State or Associated Country).
European Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for between 12 and 24 months, while the total duration of Global Postdoctoral Fellowships is between 24 and 36 months, including a mandatory 12-month return phase.
In mobility schemes, secondment may take place in another organisation in any country in the world (maximum one third of the total duration of the project).
Supported fellows must be postdoctoral researchers at the date of the call deadline, i.e. in a possession of a doctoral degree, defined as a successfully defended doctoral thesis, even if the doctoral degree has yet to be awarded. Recruited researchers must comply with the mobility rule. Researchers may be of any nationality.
Proposals involving the same recruiting organisation and individual researcher submitted to the previous call of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships under Horizon Europe and having received a score of less than 70% must not be resubmitted the following year.
- The first call under Horizon Europe is expected to open on 22/06/2021, with a closing date on 12/10/2021.
- The second call is expected to be issued on 14/04/2022, with a closing date on 14/09/2022.
- Duration of a PF action: 2 to 3 years.
