The Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships - Mobility experiences to boost your career


14.06.2021 kl. 09.30 - 18.06.2021 kl. 15.00



To boost the number of grants awarded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions under the Horizon Europe programme, F&P will arrange a  Marie Curie Talent Course on week 22 (dates and time to be confirmed). The course is intended for the following Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF) with AAU as host institution:

  • European Fellowships - to attract more talented international young researchers to AAU.
  • Global Fellowships - to develop the international profile of AAU employed researchers by giving them the opportunity to conduct a research project partly in a research institution located in a Third Country (non- EU country) and partly at AAU.

What is MSCA- PF?

MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships support individual researchers at postdoctoral level and beyond to work on a research project of their own. Mobility between countries is required in order to acquire new skills and experience, as well as to enhance the employability of the supported researcher in the future. Funding is open to researchers from any nationality.  Any research field may qualify for funding.

For the European Fellowship a strict mobility rule applies (the fellow must not have lived, worked or studied in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years before the deadline). Funding is open to researchers from any nationality. The grants are usually 2 years. An additional placement for up to 6 months in a non-academic sector in MS/AC is possible.

For the Global Fellowship, applicants may not have lived or worked in the country of the host organisation for the outgoing phase for more than 12 months during the past 3 years The Fellowships consists of a research stay (for 1-2 year) in a Third Country and a 1-year mandatory return phase to AAU. During the whole duration of the Fellowship the researcher is employed by AAU. Also here an additional placement for up to 6 months in a non-academic sector in MS/AC is possible.

In 2014-2018, relatively young to mid-career researchers (between 0 and 9 years research experience after PhD) got the highest success rates. In Horizon Europe the “scientific age” (years since PhD) is 8 and young researchers are encouraged to apply.

AAU 2021 Marie Curie Talent Course

Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the AAU Marie Curie Talent Course 2021 will be delivered online through a combination of recorded video lectures, on-line support material and on-line group works on specific topics. The course is an opportunity for talented young researchers to get support with their application. They will be introduced to AAU and every part of the proposal template.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for AAU supervisors with an excellent research track record and high quality candidates pointed out by the supervisors.
