MSCA Individual Fellowships fund post-doctoral researchers of any discipline to undertake a research project of their choice. International mobility is essential and fellowships include personal and career development objectives. Applications must therefore be written jointly between the applicant, the prospective supervisor and the host Oxford Department/Faculty.
There are two types of Individual Fellowship:
Open to researchers moving within Europe, as well as those coming to Europe from other parts of the world
Last for one to two years
Can restart a research career after a break, such as parental leave.
Can help researchers return to a research career in Europe after a period working outside Europe
Open to researchers based in Europe
Fund a period spent in an organisation outside Europe plus a one year mandatory return phase in Europe
Last between two and three years
Funding is through a series of fixed unit costs that cover the costs of employing the fellow and contribute to the expenses of the fellowship.
