Information for Applicants
The EUI (the Departments, the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced studies, and the School of Transnational Governance) acts as a host institution for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships which are awarded by the European Commission through their Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe.
The 2023 Postdoctoral Fellowships call has been published by the European Commission and opened on 12 April 2023 with the application deadline of 13 September 2023.
The EUI organises a pre-selection with the deadline of 31 May 2023 (14.00 CEST).
Candidates should ensure that they fulfil the conditions of eligibility of the call before sending an expression of interest to the EUI by applying online.
The EUI will not accept any candidates that do not have the explicit support of a member of the EUI faculty. Before applying, candidates should ensure the support of an EUI professor (full- or part-time) who would be willing to act as supervisor on their application. The name of the EUI Professor should be indicated in the application form.
Your file should contain the following elements.
1) Application form in which you are invited to provide your personal data, application details, and the names of two referees who have agreed to send a reference for you. The referees should not include members of the professorial staff of the EUI.
Attach the following documents as PDF files to the online application form:
2) A short CV.
3) A two-page research proposal.
4) A short statement with indication of why the EUI/the academic unit you have chosen would be the best host institution for your research and which are the specific training opportunities you would in particular benefit from during a stay at the EUI.
Two letters of reference should be sent directly by the referees by e-mail to [email protected]. References from current full-time/part-time EUI professors will not be accepted.
After having submitted your application online you will receive confirmation of receipt by email; if not, contact us at [email protected] to make sure that your application has safely arrived. For any questions about the application procedure please contact [email protected].
The EUI decides whether to accept the applicant and to support the application on the basis of an internal academic evaluation and the availability of suitable supervision. Priority is given to candidates whose profiles fit closely with existing interests and orientations at the EUI. The RSC gives priority to candidates whose research proposals fit well with one of the Centre’s core research themes.
Candidates will be informed of the result of the EUI pre-selection by the beginning of July.
