Marie Skłodowska Curie

Polish physicist: Marie Skłodowska Curie.

We are currently inviting expressions of interest from potential postdoctoral researches with an excellent track record for Marie Skłodowska Curie Action (MSCA) fellows

The next call for applications closes on 14th September 2017.
Expression of interest required by 7th April 2017.

MSCA Fellowships provide support for anyone with a PhD or at least four years’ research experience. The aim of these Fellowships is to enhance the skills and potential of the best researchers, whether European or non-European, willing to work in the EU.

There is a special Career Restart Panel to resume a research career after a break and it is possible to embed a secondment within the Fellowship to take place within Europe. MSCA fellowships are highly flexible, pay a generous salary, and are open to both external applicants and existing University staff who are interested in conducting research abroad. This is an excellent opportunity for researchers to gain prestigious funding for their research and Cardiff University will provide full support and guidance in developing promising applications.

Funded areas

MSCA is open to all research and innovation areas. The participation of third parties within projects is encouraged, e.g. SMEs, NGOs, Charities, museums, archives etc.


For the European Fellowships incoming to Cardiff, candidates must not have been resident in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to 14th September 2017.

We welcome expressions of interest from high quality researchers.


Candidates are invited to express their interest by completing an EOI Form and emailing to Debbie Taylor ( indicating their choice of research theme and particular group of interest by 7th April 2017.
