Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships 2023

Applications are currently welcomed from international applicants for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships for the 2023/2024 sessions. This program is open to Postdoctoral candidates.

This Fully-funded fellowship is an opportunity awarded to qualified international Postdoctoral students. This program is hosted by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and sponsored by European Commission (EU). The scheme encourages researchers to gain experience beyond academia by giving them the opportunity to request an additional six months at the end of their fellowship to undertake a placement in a non-academic organization in Europe.

The European Commission is part of the executive of the European Union, together with the European Council. It operates as a cabinet government, with 27 members of the Commission headed by a President. It includes an administrative body of about 32,000 European civil servants. The Commission is divided into departments known as Directorates-General (DGs) that can be likened to departments or ministries each headed by a Director-General who is responsible to a Commissioner. There is one member per member state, but members are bound by their oath of office to represent the general interest of the EU as a whole rather than their home state. The Commission President (currently Ursula von der Leyen) is proposed by the European Council (the 27 heads of state/governments) and elected by the European Parliament.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) is a set of major research fellowships created by the European Union/European Commission to support research in the European Research Area (ERA). The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are among Europe’s most competitive and prestigious research and innovation fellowships. Established in 1996 as Marie Curie Actions and known since 2014 as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, they aim to foster the career development and further training of researchers at all career stages. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions promote interdisciplinary research and international collaborations, supporting scientists from not only within Europe but also across the globe. Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are currently financed through the eighth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (called Horizon 2020) and belong to the so-called ‘first pillar’ of Horizon2020: “Excellent Science.” Through this funding scheme, the Research Executive Agency (REA) has devoted over €6 billion to the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions between 2014 and 2020.
