Workshop: How to Write a Competitive Proposal for a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship 2023

Postdoctoral Fellowships give researchers holding a PhD a chance to gain new skills and experience whilst carrying out their own research project abroad. The MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship call is open to researchers of any nationality and applications in any scientific field. The Fellowships include European Fellowships, which allow researchers to carry out a personalised project in the EU or countries associated to Horizon Europe, and Global Fellowships, open to European nationals or long-term residents wishing to work with organisations in third countries before returning to a host institution in Europe. Deadline for the call: 13 September 2023.

Check if you are eligible to apply:
Mobility rule for European Fellowships: All nationals can apply, but the fellow cannot have resided or worked/studied in Sweden more than 12 months during the last 36 months immediately before the deadline on 13 September.

Mobility rule for Global Fellowships: mobility rule: fellows must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host organisation for the outgoing phase for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before the call deadline 13 September.

Fellow must successfully have defended the PhD thesis at the time of the deadline and have no more than a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research from the date of PhD award.

If you sent in an MSCA PF application to the 2022 call, your evaluation score must be above 70% to be eligible to apply this year.

Workshop participation:
The workshop is open for fellows who plan to apply with Lund University as host and already have a project idea and an agreement with a supervisor at LU. Supervisors are welcome to participate as the application both gains on and needs to be written in collaboration.

Understand what MSCA PF reviewers are looking for in your proposal.
How to communicate key messages within the Excellence, Impact, and Implementation sections of the proposal.
Develop skills and knowledge for writing a competitive MSCA PF proposal.
