What are the Marie Skłodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships?

Postdoctoral Fellowships support the mobility of researchers within and beyond Europe - as well as helping to attract the best foreign researchers to work in the EU. The grant usually covers two years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Individual researchers submit proposals for funding in liaison with their planned host organisation. Proposals are judged on their research quality, the researcher's future career prospects, and the support offered by the host organisation. Fellows can also spend part of the fellowship elsewhere in Europe if this would boost impact, and those restarting their career in Europe benefit from special eligibility conditions.​

All areas of research are covered, including STEM, social sciences, humanities and economic sciences.​

Maynooth University is interested in hosting Marie Skłodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships. With a wide range of research expertise and areas, we can provide an excellent mentoring and training environment.
