The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship is a prestigious research grant awarded to exceptional researchers from around the world. The fellowship is named after the renowned physicist and chemist Marie Skłodowska-Curie, who was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to win two Nobel Prizes in different scientific fields.
The fellowship is funded by the European Union and supports researchers in their postdoctoral research activities across all scientific disciplines. MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a Ph.D. who wish to acquire new skills through advanced training, and international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral mobility.
MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships will be open to excellent researchers of any nationality. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2024 is now open for applications, providing an opportunity for promising researchers to further their careers and make significant contributions to their fields of study.
