MarieCurie@UC

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) support researchers in all scientific fields and any nationality.

At the University of Coimbra, we believe that by receiving high-quality doctoral researchers through MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships and by training UC R&D Units for successful applications, we will strengthen research and development capacity at UC.

If you are a postdoctoral researcher and are interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF) at the University of Coimbra we would be happy to hear from you.

All interested applicants are encouraged to contact directly the Research Units at UC and the respective contact points.

Main objectives:

  • Foster excellence through implementation of research project
  • Enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD (training on transferable skills and career development)
  • Focus on i3 (international, inter-sectoral, interdisciplinary) mobility
  • Bridges and exposure to the non-academic sector

Are you planning to apply to a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (MSCA-PF)?

An MSCA-PF can be a great boost to your career if you are looking for a prestigious Fellowship that allows you to pursue your own independent research (learn more here).

This year, a budget of 242 million euros is expected to be awarded in the MSCA-PF-2021 call.  To be eligible, applicants must be in possession of a PhD at the call deadline and have up to 8 years research experience after PhD. This period includes the following exceptions: career breaks, work outside research and research outside Europe for reintegrating researchers. Additionally, the mobility rule requires that you should be based in EU member States or Associated Countries and have not resided in Portugal for more than 12 months in the 36 months prior to the call’s deadline in order to be eligible.

You may apply to an European Fellowship (12 - 24 Months) or to a Global Fellowship (24 - 36 Months, where 12 - 24 is the outgoing phase of the Fellowship + 12 Months mandatory return phase in Europe), with the chance to pursue inter-sectorial secondments worldwide (up to 1/3  of the fellowship duration). Furthermore, from 2021 onward you can opt to include an additional placement of up to 6 months in a non-academic European organization at the end of the Fellowship.

What does MarieCurie@UC have to offer?
