Marie Curie Fellowships 2015

The University of Bath’s Approach to Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Fellowship Actions 2015.

The Marie Curie Fellowship call opened 12 March 2015, closing 10 September 2015.

The University of Bath is providing a proposal support service for this year’s Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) schemes. Through our Research & Innovation Services (RIS), we will provide assistance to Bath's host Principal Investigators (PIs) and the applicants themselves to help develop their proposals.

The Actions

The Marie Curie Fellowships provide significant financial support to a Research Fellow for a period of 12-24 months on any research topic. Candidates must have either a doctoral degree or at least 4 years’ full-time research experience, post-Bachelor degree. The two actions we are supporting are:

  • European Fellowship (EF)

This fellowship is designed for researchers willing to develop their career in Europe outside their home country. European Fellows may come from any country except the UK, or if the Fellow is already in the UK, have been resident for less than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the submission deadline. These schemes can be used to recruit postdoctoral researchers, or host more senior non-UK based research visitors.

  • Global Fellowship (GF)

Fellows are seconded to a country outside Europe (non-EU/AC country) for 12-24 months, and a mandatory 12 month return to Europe/AC host (Bath). University of Bath academics could apply to this scheme to:

  • Coincide with a scheduled sabbatical, for example, or
  • Use this scheme to attract an EU postdoc back to Bath after a 12-24 month period outside Europe.

In both incidents we will work with you and your nominated host on your application.

Recruiting Incoming Fellows

In order to help academics to attract applicants to Bath using this scheme we are advertising a list of proposed research projects which incoming fellows might be interested in.

Potential Candidates wishing to come to the University of Bath

Please contact the PIs directly whose projects are of interest to you, either using the advertised research areas as highlighted or through the University of Bath’s Research pages.
