The Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) is looking to host talented and ambitious postdocs as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellows (MSCA-IF). You can find information about the 175 host offers of UCM research groups in the following website:
What are the MSCA Individual Fellowships?
MSCA Individual Fellowships are designed to help researchers to launch successful academic careers. Enjoying a MSCA fellowship at UCM will allow you to gain research experience, develop research independence and maturity, improve your professional skills and make grow your international profile and network. You will also live in a dynamic, vibrant and multi-cultural European capital city with salary conditions very competitive in relation to the average cost of living in Madrid (gross salary of about € 50,000).
An attractive feature of MSCA-IF is the flexibility of the European Commission (EC) in fixing the start date of funded projects. If necessary, this date could be delayed up to 18 months after the signing of the Grant Agreement. In the current call (2019), it would mean that projects could delay until mid 2021. The fellows be able to optimize the end date of other research contracts through this possibility.
The Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) as host institution, through its European Liaison Office, will provide support to applicants throughout the proposal preparation process:
- A complete "Step by Step" guide with all the materials necessary (e.g. Institutional information, handbooks on “How to Write a Successful Application to the MSCA Program”, etc.) to achieve a competitive proposal.
- Support in the application process (e.g. submitting, drafting, etc.) and deep review of the proposal by experienced advisors.
- Mediation between the applicants and other services of the UCM (e.g. Technology Transfer Office, Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit, Entrepreneurship service, etc.).
