MSCA – Postdoctoral Fellowships

The goal of MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training, international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. The scheme supports academic projects but does strongly encourage researchers to include project work in the non-academic sector.

Who can apply?

  • MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to excellent researchers of any nationality, including researchers wishing to reintegrate in Europe.
  • Applications will be made jointly by the researcher together with a beneficiary in the academic or non-academic sector.
  • Applicants must have been awarded their doctoral degree within 8 years prior to the deadline of the call with exception of career breaks.
  • Applicants have not resided/studied/worked in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately prior to the deadline.

Fellowship types:

Postdoctoral Fellowships either can take place in Europe (i.e. in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country) or in a Third Country not associated to Horizon Europe:

  • European Postdoctoral Fellowships: Fellows (any nationality) either come to Europe from any country in the world or move within Europe for a project. The standard duration of these fellowships must be between 12 and 24 months.
  • Global Postdoctoral Fellowships: For European nationals or long-term residents - these fellowships require an outgoing phase of minimum 12 and maximum 24 months in a non-associated Third Country, and a mandatory 12-month return phase to a host organisation based in an EU Member State or a Horizon Europe Associated Country.
  • Fellowships may be prolonged up to 6 months through a placement in the non-academic sector at the end of the project.

Grant covers:

  • Living allowance
  • Mobility allowance
  • Family allowance (if applicable)
  • Special needs allowance (if applicable)

Why is it beneficial to apply in the Czech Republic? It is possible to use additional sources for funding:

  • ERA Fellowships: for Widening countries (achieved by 20-25% of proposals)
  • International mobility of researchers „MSCA PF CZ“: Support for arrivals to the Czech Republic and departures from the Czech Republic (it is necessary to obtain Seal of Excellence – achieved by up to 80% of proposals)
