Expressions of Interest for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships
In line with DEUSTO strategy to promote excellence, the University of Deusto and Deusto Foundation periodically invite Expressions of Interest from potential international postdoctoral researchers who are interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Individual Fellowships (IFs). These fellowships offer the most talented and promising researchers the opportunity to enhance their career development and prospects through advanced training, international and intersectoral mobility. If successful, the MSCA-IF will provide a competitive salary (an allowance to cover living, mobility and family costs) and an allocation for research, training and networking costs of the researcher. The aim of these Expressions of Interest calls is to attract and support applications to the MSCA-IF Calls of the best candidates that decide to choose DEUSTO as host institution.
Each year the University of Deusto identifies different topics for the candidates to apply via an online tool. The 2019 call for Expressions of Interest for IFs is closed. A new call is planned for spring 2020. Details will be published in this webpage in due time.
