Call background

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF) is an opportunity to attract highly qualified postdocs to AU through EUs flagship funding programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training of researchers. The MSCA PF aim to enhance the career development and training of researchers through international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. They provide postdocs with the opportunity to acquire new skills and competences and their supervisors with the transfer of new skills and network opportunities.

Eligibility criteria for MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships

  • Applicants must have acquired a PhD degree within the last 8 years at the time of the application deadline (11 September 2024).

  • Applicants cannot have resided in Denmark for more than 12 months within the last 36 months.
