Today,(April 12, 2023), the European Commission opened a new call for the 2023 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships. With a budget of EUR 260.5 million, these grants will enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD and wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training and international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral mobility. The call will also allow organisations all over the world to attract talented researchers, including top universities, research centres, public and private organisations and medium-sized enterprises. The call will close on 13 September 2023 and is expected to fund over 1200 projects.
Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said: “The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for postdoctoral researchers who want to expand their horizons, improve their opportunities on the job market, and their career prospects. I invite all researchers meeting the criteria to apply, and I wish every one of you the best of luck: I am looking forward to the exciting results I know those selected will deliver through their work.”
The Postdoctoral Fellowships consist of two strands: European Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to researchers of any nationality to carry out a personalised project in the EU or countries associated to Horizon Europe. Global Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to European nationals or long-term residents who wish to work with organisations outside the countries mentioned above before returning to Europe.
