Webinar on MSC Individual Fellowships

The Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSC-IF) for your successful scientific carrier within Europe and beyond

On June 25, the GSI Grant Office in cooperation with the European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi) will be organising a webinar about the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSC-IF). This program supports the scientific career development of scientists at a postdoc level (with a PhD and/or having at least four years of research experience) to do a research project abroad. The research topic is open and  age of the researcher does not play a role. Successful applicants will receive a full-time employment contract which covers living, mobility and family costs including social security.

The event aims in particular at

  • International researchers independent of nationality planning to conduct a MSC-IF project at GSI/FAIR, i.e. European Fellowship
  • GSI/FAIR researchers willing to gain research experience abroad (outside of EU or EU associated courtiers) and holding a national or long-term (at least 5 consecutive years) residentship of EU or EU associated country, i.e. Global Fellowship.

Detailed information about actual call (deadline September 9, 2020), the eligibility and mobility criteria, the proposal and submission process will be presented. To explore different perspectives, successful MSC-IF applicants will share their personal experiences. Your questions will be welcomed. Private discussions with the supervisor of your choice at GSI/FAIR can be arranged in the afternoon.*

GSI Grant Office will moderate this event. Your questions during and after the webinar would be most welcomed and appreciated.
