MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships: more than €260 million for individual researchers to pursue frontier research worldwide

Today, the European Commission opened a new call for the 2023 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships.


With a budget of €260.5 million, these grants will enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD and wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training and international, interdisciplinary, and inter-sectoral mobility. The call will also allow organisations all over the world to attract talented researchers, including top universities, research centres, public and private organisations and medium-sized enterprises.  The call will close on 13 September 2023 and is expected to fund over 1,200 projects. 

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said: “The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for postdoctoral researchers who want to expand their horizons, improve their opportunities on the job market, and their career prospects. I invite all researchers meeting the criteria to apply, and I wish every one of you the best of luck: I am looking forward to the exciting results I know those selected will deliver through their work.” 

The Postdoctoral Fellowships consist of two strands: European Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to researchers of any nationality to carry out a personalised project in the EU or countries associated to Horizon Europe. Global Postdoctoral Fellowships are open to European nationals or long-term residents who wish to work with organisations outside the countries mentioned above before returning to Europe.

More information on the 2023 Postdoctoral Fellowship call and on how to apply is available online.
