MSCA Individual Fellowships

MSCA – Individual Fellowships

Are you looking for a vibrant research environment to perform a postdoctoral fellowship funded by the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions  of the European Commission?

Find a research group you would like to join in our Research Directory.  A joint application can only be considered in case there is a match with a supervisor who is a full professor at Ghent University.

Funding programme

Individual fellowships (IF) aim to support experienced researchers undertaking mobility between countries, optionally to the non-academic sector. Individual Fellowships will support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as helping to attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU. The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution.
Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation. 

Applicants must take into account the Mobility Rule: the applicant must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission of proposals. Besides the European mobility rules, UGent has additional conditions in order to offer you an attractive position.
