In the framework and spirit of the CIVIS Alliance, CIVIS universities are thriving to attract the most promising researchers to apply for a Marie-Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) within the CIVIS network.
The Marie-Sklodowska Curie Actions aim at supporting the career development of researchers in all the domains of science and promoting collaborations between scientific communities. In particular, the Postdoctoral Fellowship program and the upcoming MSCA CIVIS3i call, both covering salary, research costs, and management costs for the host institution, grant individual, trans-national fellowships to outstanding researchers of any nationality who will carry out research jointly with a supervisor at a European Host Institution. On the other hand, supervisors of MSCA fellows are expected to host the researchers in their research group, supervise their research activities and provide support for the development of their career and project proposal. Please, find the European Commission Guidelines on Supervision attached.
In this context, CIVIS would like to facilitate the search for supervisors by developing a data base through which potential fellowship candidates can easily identify suitable supervisors. Hence, if you are keen to host a MSCA fellow to work with you or in your research team, please, fill in the following online form by 19th of May 2021: MSCA Supervisors (airtable.com). You will be able to choose your panel and field of expertise, we suggest to keep the latter at a maximum of five to guarantee the interest of the most fitting candidates. We will forward to you the applications of candidates that are interested in submitting a proposal with you as their supervisor. If you finally decide to act as supervisor for one of them, we will provide all the necessary support for the preparation and submission of the proposal, including coaching of all the applicants and support for submission.
The Postdoctoral Fellowships call for proposal will open on the 18th of May 2021 and the deadline to submit the proposal to the European Commission is 15th of September 2021, while the call for proposal for CIVIS3i fellowships will be launched in July.
