The Marie Curie Individual Fellowships Call is now open. These Fellowships are expected to add significantly to the development of the best and most promising researchers active in Europe, in order to enhance and maximise their contribution to the knowledge-based economy and society. This development is achieved through advanced training, possible 3-6 month secondments, as well as international and intersectoral mobility. Individual Fellowships provide opportunities to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research in the EU, build telling long term collaborations, and expand their research group size and quality.
Fellowships are either European Fellowships (EF’s) or Global Fellowships (GF’s). The department supports European Fellowships (EFs), which allow Fellows to travel to the UK and work with us in Oxford. Global Fellowships (GFs) are not supported because they pose a significant financial risk if the Fellow does not return after their secondment period (please contact us for more information).
This is designed for experienced researchers only (doctoral degree or at least four years’ full-time research experience), who, by the deadline, have been living in the UK for less than 12 months or are applying from another country. The scheme particularly supports the return and reintegration of researchers from outside Europe who have previously worked here. It also develops or helps to restart the careers of individual researchers that show great potential, considering their experience.
The deadline for this call isn’t until the 11th September 2015, however if you can let us know as soon as you think you may want to apply, then we can assist you from there.
