The SEA-EU universities are interested in facilitating the collaborations between early career researchers and potential supervisors working at the partner universities within the framework of the Marie Sklodowska Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships. MSCA forms part of the Horizon Europe programme, the largest research funding programme in Europe.

The MSCA programme enables early career researchers to move to a host institution in another European country to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda and their future career through international and intersectoral networking.

MSCA European Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for a duration of 12-24 months to researchers of any nationality who,

  • are in possession of a doctoral degree
  • have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent (FTE) experience in research,
  • comply with the MSCA mobility rule, i.e. have not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the respective European host country for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately prior the call deadline and
  • have identified a supervisor in a European country willing to host and support them.

If awarded, the Postdoctoral Fellowships grant covers salary, a mobility allowance and research costs and overheads for the host institution. Individual candidates together with their supervisor submit proposals for funding under this competitive call through the European Commission’s Funding and Tenders portal; the call will close on 13 September 2023.In order to encourage applications, the SEA-EU universities have identified topics (in all disciplines) with motivated researchers to act as potential supervisors for candidates intending to apply for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the framework of the MSCA programme. More than 100 SEA-EU supervisors are interested in discussing innovative research ideas with motivated candidates.


If, as a postdoctoral researcher, you are interested in getting in touch with potential supervisors, please prepare your CV and a research project outline document (up to 2 pages) identifying the research synergies with the researcher (according to the pre-identified topics) and then follow the instructions in the table below. If both you and the supervisor decide that the cooperation is highly valuable, you will be supported by the supervisor as well as the Research Support Service of the respective SEA-EU university to develop a competitive MSCA proposal.

Please note: The topics below are not job advertisements but only represent opportunities to develop an innovative proposal in one of the SEA-EU research teams.
