Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships call now open

20 April 2016

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships is the EU’s flagship fellowship scheme, as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. Open to all fields of research, applications are welcomed from postdoctoral researchers, with no upper limit on career stage. Fellowships can last between 12-24 months and the Fellow must move from any other country to their chosen host institution to take up the Fellowship.

Fellowships can be based either entirely within the EU (‘European Fellowship’) or include a period in a third country followed by a return phase in a European host institution (‘Global Fellowship’).

Features

Individual Fellowships have the following features:

  • Available in all fields of research, with no set priorities
  • Can last for 12-24 months and in most cases should be 100% research-focused
  • Fellows must move to the host institution from any other country (‘mobility rule’)
  • Fellow must be post-doctoral (or equivalent experience); there are no age or career stage restrictions
  • The track record of the proposed Fellow is an important consideration
  • Two types of Fellowship are available: European Fellowships or Global Fellowships
  • Applications are welcomed from those wishing to return and reintegrate into Europe who have previously worked here, or who wish to restart a research career.

Structure

Fellowships should be based on ‘training-through-research’, with a clearly defined research project and appropriate training/career development activities. Applicants are encouraged to include a secondment phase in the non-academic sector within the proposed fellowship. Inclusion of relevant public engagement activities is also important.

Funding

Funding is provided to cover the Fellows’ salary, a research and training budget, and management costs, based on fixed unit costs. read more

MRC Public Health Intervention Development Scheme (PHIND)

19 April 2016

The Medical Research Council has published details of its Public Health Intervention Development Scheme (PHIND). The PHIND is designed to support the development of novel and high risk interventions in areas of importance to public health in the UK or globally.

The emphasis is on proposals which aim to ‘develop the necessary evidence to underpin the later development and evaluation of novel public health interventions’. These can be quantitative or qualitative primary research, theory development and intervention design. Proposals addressing complex, population level problems in non-healthcare settings (transport, education, employment, leisure and the built environment) are welcomed. read more
