Call for expression of interestMSCA postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Angers

You are a post-doc researcher, and you would like to expand your experience with a stay in a French research group? You are ready for a new challenge and an international career? You would like to broaden your network and mature as an independent researcher? Then the Marie Sklodowska Curie Action (MSCA) post-doctoral fellowship from the Horizon Europe programme is made for you!

Post-doctoral Fellowships are a great option if you are a researcher looking to give your career a boost by working abroad. They offer exciting new learning opportunities and a chance to add some sparkle to your CV. The goal of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD and who wish to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility. 
The MSCA fellowships provide funding for researchers. The grant usually covers up to two years’ salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Post-doctoral researchers submit proposals for funding together with a supervisor in their planned host organisation. Proposals are evaluated on research quality, the researcher’s future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organisation.  

What is the “Springboard toward Marie Sklodowska Curie”?

The University of Angers is launching a call to attract future MSCA Fellowship candidates and support them with their application. Beneficiaries of this call of proposal will take part to an online training that will cover everything you need to know to propose a competitive MSCA-PF application. 

Then a two-day stay will be funded before July 2023 in Angers for meeting, training and support. The University of Angers will give the fellow the opportunity to come to Angers for 2 days to meet his/her supervisor and to start working on the writing of the project.  
The grant awarded for this stay will cover the event expenditures: travel (up to 1000€ from EU countries and up to 2000€ from non-EU countries), hotel and subsistence expenses (for 2 days and 2 nights). The University of Angers does not cover the visa fees.
