The Institute for Comparative Federalism has opened the deadline to apply for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Week 2022. This training event is aimed for researchers interested in applying for a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship hosted at Eurac Research.

Since 2016, the Research Support Office has organised the MSC Week to offer postdoctoral researchers from across the globe the opportunity to work together with Eurac Research on their applications for the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship. During the MSC Week, researchers develop their fellowship proposal together with senior researchers from Eurac Research, learn from current MSCA Fellows in Eurac Research, and are trained by MSCA experts and an MSCA evaluator on the dos-and-don’ts of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship proposal. After the MSC Week, the trainers accompany the researchers by writing and fine-tuning their fellowship proposals until the submission deadline.

MSC Week 2022

MSC Week 2022 takes place from 23 to 27 May 2022. Throughout the MSC Week training programme, the participants learn about the objectives of the MSCA Programme, the various parts of the MSCA-PF proposal, and best practices in writing a competitive MSCA-PF proposal. Participants also have the opportunity to discuss their planned project with their expected supervisors, receive feedback on their initial project ideas from experts in Eurac Research, and learn from and engage with current MSCA Fellows in Eurac Research.

Who can apply

The programme is open to PhD-degree holders who want to apply for the Postdoctoral Fellowship with Eurac Research as a Host. To be eligible for MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship, a researcher must hold a PhD degree, have a maximum of 8 years of research experience, and comply with the “mobility rule” (as defined in the Work Programme). For a detailed overview of the eligibility conditions of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship grants, please also consult the Guide for Applicants.

They are looking for postdoctoral researchers with excellent CVs and promising research track records. Applicants are expected to be open-minded and willing to collaborate with Eurac Research and our institutes when defining their proposed projects.

How to apply

Before submitting their application, researchers interested in participating in the MSC Week should familiarise themselves with the various Institutes and Centers in Eurac Research and ask a researcher from one of the Institutes or Centers to serve as their supervisor. The support of a supervisor is necessary for applying to participate in the MSC Week.

Eurac Research as a Host for MSCA-PF

Eurac Research is a private research centre, founded in Bozen in 1992. The Eurac Research’s initial focus was on the areas of language and law, minorities and autonomies, and the Alpine environment. However, over time the centre has extended its research into other disciplines, attracting researchers from all over the world and opening up new facilities. Eurac Research’s goal is to improve life for future generations. Often, in response to regional problems, the centre develops concrete solutions that can be applied globally and explore new avenues of scientific research to meet people’s needs. Eurac Research is part of several international research networks with partnerships in more than 50 countries. The centre collaborates with the Alpine Convention, the Carpathian Convention, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), as well as with many space agencies. Today, about 400 researchers from 25 countries work at Eurac Research. Their research is concerned with three major themes: regions fit for living in, a healthy society, and diversity as a life-enhancing factor.
