Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships– Open for Applications

We are thrilled to announce that the esteemed MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships call is now open for applications.

The objective of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships is to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. These fellowships target researchers holding a PhD who aspire to conduct their research activities abroad, acquire new skills, and advance their careers.

The duration of the fellowships can range between 1 and 2 years, and researchers of any nationality are eligible to apply. The MSCA provides support in the form of salary costs for the doctoral candidate, research, training, networking costs, and overall project management.

Applicants are required to collaborate with a host organization. The Global Development Institute (GDI) is eager to assist applicants from the global South by acting as a host and providing a supervisor who can offer support and mentoring.

GDI is committed to producing and co-producing research that pushes the boundaries of knowledge, driven by the goal of advancing social justice on a global scale. This is achieved through conducting interdisciplinary research that rigorously advances development theory. GDI collaborates closely with a diverse range of researchers from the global South, making this fellowship an excellent opportunity to expand collaborations further.

If you are interested in applying, please contact Odile Masiá, GDI research manager, to learn more.
