The University of Trento (Italy) welcomes expressions of interest from excellent international postdoctoral researchers interested in applying to the European Commission Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship with a research project to be carried out in Trento.
The Marie Skłodowska Curie Action is a funding scheme that supports the mobility of researchers. Individual Fellowships (IF) may last 12-24 months and involve a research project, advanced training and knowledge exchange at the host institution. It offers a competitive salary, mobility and family allowances plus a budget for research and training costs. Applicants are expected to have an excellent CV and a strong publication record.
Selected candidates will be offered both academic and administrative support from the Research Office of the University to develop their proposal.
