Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship program (MSCA PF)
Tallinn University's School of Humanities invites young and talented scholars/researchers to express their interest in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship program (MSCA PF). The MSCA PF is a prestigious fellowship program to enhance researchers' creative and innovative potential. It finances funding for 12-24 months of research, focusing on career development and working with a supervisor to acquire new skills.
The fellowship benefits include a salary, mobility allowance, family allowance (only if applicable), and relevant research expenses.
Partner host institutions allow candidates to work with excellent supervisors with extensive experience. Additionally, the program ensures that candidates receive the best possible guidance and support. It also provides a unique onsite proposal writing training prospect suitable for any level of experience as the training gradually moves from basic notions to the most exciting aspects of the proposal preparation. The five-day, fully hands-on training, which takes place from 10-14 July, will involve guidelines, workshops from research advisers, and continuing discussions and support (from both the advisers and supervisors) during the writing process. Accommodation, meals, and travel support will also be provided.
