The Marie Skłodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship programme (MSCA-PF) is a highly renowned European funding scheme. It offers talented scientists the unique chance to set up 2-year research and training projects with the support of a supervising team. Besides providing an attractive grant including mobility, family and research allowances, it represents a major opportunity to boost the career of promising researchers.  

The submission deadline of proposals to the European Commission is set on the 11th September 2024 and successful research proposals selected for funding may start in May 2025 at the earliest. 

2PE – Bretagne initiated an original action towards potential candidates for the MSCA Postdoctoral fellowships (MSCA-PF). 

This action aims to increase chances of success for motivated fellows by offering dedicated support from both scientific and technical staff to write an excellent research and training project. 

2PE – Bretagne and academic institutions in Brittany are thus looking for excellent postdoctoral researchers with an international profile willing to apply for a Marie S. Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship with a competitive proposal in September 2024. 

 

Eligibility criteria for prospective applicants 

Academic qualification: By the MSCA-PF call deadline (11th September 2024), applicants must be in possession of a doctoral degree, defined as a successfully defended doctoral thesis, even if the doctoral degree has yet to be awarded. 

Research experience: Applicants must have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research, measured from the date applicants were in possession of a doctoral degree. Years of experience outside research and career breaks (e.g. due to parental leave), will not be taken into account. 

Nationality & Mobility rules: Applicants can be of any nationality but must not have resided more than 12 months in France between the 12/09/2021 and the 11/09/2024.

HOW TO APPLY 

We encourage all motivated and eligible postdoctoral researchers to send their expressions of interest through the EU Survey application form (link here), before 5th of May 2024. 

 

Your application shall include: 

  • a CV specifying:
    • (i) the exact dates for each position and its location (country)
    • (ii) a list of publications
  • a cover letter including a research outline (up to 2 pages) identifying the research synergies with the project supervisor(s) and proposed research topics described above.

Following the reception of your expression of interest, we will check the eligibility of your profile for a MSCA-PF application. Supervisor(s) will then select the most promising applications. Subsequently, supervisors will contact you in due time (mid-May) for further discussions and proposal writing until September 2024. If funded, the MSCA-PF project submitted in September 2024 could start from May 2025 onwards.
