The Marie Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) scheme is a prestigious European funding programme that supports mobility, career development, and training within and beyond Europe. The scheme offer 2-3 years' highly-competitive salary and research costs.
MSCA IF involve a joint application between the researcher and Universitat Pompeu Fabra. They are for Experienced Researchers (4 years full time research experience or PhD) moving to Barcelona from another country. Projects are between 12 to 36 months with a typical total budget of around €85,000 per annum. A Career Restart option is available to those inactive for 12 months or more and a Reintegration option is available to those previously active in EU who seek to return.
All expressions of interest must meet the eligibility criteria of the scheme - applicants must have a PhD, or equivalent research experience. Applicants from any country may apply, but must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the submission deadline.
