Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships: Call for Expressions of Interest

24 April 2018

The GGI invites applications from postdoctoral researchers to be hosted at the GGI under the European Commission's MSCA Individual Fellowships scheme.


Interested candidates can apply jointly with a supervisor from the GGI and the UCL Department of Political Science. The MSCA Individual Fellowships support career development activities, mobility, and training within and beyond Europe for up to three years. The scheme guidance states: 'The goal of the Individual Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of experienced researchers, wishing to diversify their individual competence in terms of skill acquisition through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility'

Fellows must be experienced researchers (ER), at the date of the call deadline; or be in possession of a doctoral degree; or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience. Researchers may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the three years immediately before the call deadline.

The deadline for final submission to the European Commission is 12 September 2018. Expressions of interest should be submitted to GGI by 15 June 2018, 5pm, by emailing Tom Pegram (t.pegram@ucl.ac.uk), copying in Monica Barbone (m.barbone@ucl.ac.uk).

Decisions will be communicated by 22 June 2018. The candidate(s) will then be invited to make a formal application with the UCL supervisor to the European Commission by the call's actual deadline of 12 September 2018.
