Applicant information

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship call opened 11 April 2019.

The University of Bath is providing a proposal support service for this year’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IF) scheme. Research and Innovation Services (RIS) is providing assistance to Bath's host Principal Investigators (PIs) and fellowship applicants, to help develop their proposals.

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.

Actions being supported

The two actions we are supporting are:

European Fellowship (EF)

This fellowship is designed for researchers willing to develop their career in Europe at the University of Bath, outside their home country. European Fellows may come from any country except the UK. If already in the UK, the Fellow must 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 for:

  • coinciding with a scheduled sabbatical
  • attracting 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

See our proposed research projects for recruiting Incoming Fellows.

Potential candidates wishing to come to the University of Bath

Potential candidates wishing to come to the University of Bath must contact the PIs, whose projects are of interest to you, directly. You can do this either using the advertised research areas or the University of Bath’s Research pages.

All potential candidates must contact their Bath PIs by Wednesday 29 May 2019.

MSCA IFs and Brexit

Ongoing negotiations about the UK’s exit from the EU pose a certain level of uncertainty, as only EU member states or Associated Countries are eligible to be hosts for MSCA IFs. The proposed Withdrawal Agreement would ensure that the UK’s participation would be unaffected. Please contact RIS if you want to discuss any concerns regarding applying.
