The Centre for Condensed Mater and Material Physics, part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), welcomes Expressions of Interest for researchers to apply jointly with a QMUL host supervisor, to the European Commission’s 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual European Fellowship Scheme.
29 May 2020
The Fellowships are a prestigious EU funding scheme which support mobility, career development and training in Europe and beyond. The fellowships offer 12-24 months highly competitive researcher salary and research/training funds. The fellowship should include an individual research project, integrated with advanced training, professional development and knowledge transfer, hosted at QMUL.
What does the Fellowship entail?
A researcher with either a PhD or 4 years relevant research experience, moves to an institution in another country (the “host country”), where she/he works with a designated supervisor to deliver a specific research and training project. Both Supervisor and Fellow should collaborate on the application.
Candidates are expected to have a strong CV relative to their career stage and should be able to demonstrate their high potential.
*Note that gross salary includes employer on-costs and tax
All allowances are flat rates and calculated according to the duration of the fellowship.
