MSCA IF - Seal of Excellence
The internal call MSCA IF - Seal of Excellence is promoted within the framework of the 2017-2021 University Strategic Plan initiatives aimed at strengthening the autonomy and independence of young researchers, in order to fund annual research grants at UniTrento (in the Department / Center identified in the proposal) to researchers who obtained the SoE in the MSCA-IF call.
The annual grant will be aimed at the implementation of the research activity and the revision of the MSCA-IF project proposal to be resubmitted in the next call.
The Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded to applicants for MSCA Individual Fellowships (IF) scoring 85/100 or more but which cannot be funded due to budget constraints.
The 2021 selection is addressed to researchers who 1) have submitted a MSCA - IF project in the 2020 call, with UniTrento as Host Institution, 2) have been awarded with the Seal of Excellence 3) have been shortlisted in the specific panel or have received a score not more than 3/100 below the panel specific pay-line.
In order to promote the career development of young researchers, the University of Trento offers MSCA-IF fellows at UniTrento the funding of one additional contract year (12 months). The action aims to allow UniTrento MSCA-IF fellows, who have obtained a positive evaluation of the activities and results of the MSCA-IF project from the relative Department, to continue and to further develop the MSCA-IF project research activity in order to prepare and submit:
- an ERC project proposal with UniTrento acting as Host Institution or, alternatively,
- a project proposal in the framework of national and international competitive research calls (either as coordinator or as partner).
The 2021 selection is addressed to MSCA-IF UniTrento fellows whose research grant contract expires no later than 31 December 2021.
Call for Expression of Interest - MSCA Postdoctoral fellowships
The University of Trento (Italy), at some of its departments, welcomes expressions of interest from excellent international postdoctoral researchers interested in applying to the European Commission Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships 2021 with UniTrento as host institution.
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.
Selected candidates will be offered both academic and administrative support to develop their proposal.
Research fellowships and collaborations
Research fellowships are designed to attract qualified academics, who have a masters or doctoral degree and the required experience to lead a University research project or carry out their own.
Besides, from time to time, the departments also recruit research collaborators as scientific coordinators within international projects.
The University of Trento aims to recruit the most talented applicants to teaching and research positions, including by preferring candidates applying from a foreign country and by recognizing the value of international experience.
