Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships

We actively support proposals and welcome postdoctoral researchers under the prestigeous Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF), previously known as Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF). The grants are provided by the European Commission in the framework of the research programme Horizon Europe for 2021-2027.

Why MSCA PF at UCT Prague?

It is an outstanding opportunity for you to:

  • advance your career in research, under the guidance of an internationally recognised UCT-based supervisor (check the list of UCT Prague departments and research groups to find the right match for you and do not hesitate to contact us)
  • get qualified support with the preparation and implementation of your project, underpinned by our rich experience with EU-funded projects, including MSCA
  • substantially increase your chances to implement the MSCA proposal thanks to national funding schemes for proposals with high evaluation scores (usually as from 70%)
