Webinar: The Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSC-PF) for your successful scientific career within Europe and beyond

Online information event organised by GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH in cooperation with European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi). Please see https://www.gsi.de/en/researchaccelerators/fair for more information about GSI/FAIR.

Date: 28 June 2024

Time: 09:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. + optional 13:15 – 15:15 (CET)

The event aims in particular at:

  • Researchers independent of nationality planning to conduct a project at GSI/FAIR, i.e. applying for European Postdoctoral Fellowship
  • GSI/FAIR researchers willing to gain research experience abroad (outside of EU or EU associated courtiers) and holding a national or longterm (at least 5 consecutive years) residentship of an EU or an EU associated country, i.e. applying for Global Postdoctoral Fellowship.
  • Potential supervisors – please keep in mind that MSCA-PF research proposal should be written jointly with the host organisation.

At this event, experts will introduce the most relevant aspects of the actual MSC-PF call and provide helpful tips on writing a successful proposal. In addition, successful MSC-IF applicant will share a personal experience – participants have a possibility to learn from successful proposal before submission.

Optional (1 to 1) discussions with the supervisor of choice may also be arranged (please mention it during the registration via eu-support@gsi.de). GSI Grant Office administrative staff involved in proposal submission and further project management will moderate this event. Questions before, during and after the webinar would be most welcomed and appreciated. In view of the fact that several weeks are needed for application preparation, the organisers highly recommend to use this chance to get in contact with potential supervisor and GSI Grant Office in time and preferably prior summer holidays.
