IMDEA Nanociencia is seeking postdoctoral researchers who are interested in applying to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships Call 2023.  

The MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships support researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad, acquire new skills and develop their careers.

This EU funded fellowship provides an allowance to cover living, mobility and family costs. In addition, the EU contributes to the research, training and networking costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project.

Fellowships may also include short-term secondments anywhere in the world during the fellowship. Researchers can receive additional support to carry out a placement of up to 6 months in a non-academic organisation based in an EU Member State or Horizon Europe Associated Country at the end of their fellowship
