Marie Skłodowska-Curie Master Class

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences offers a Master Class for those applying for the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowship Call.

Master Class 2021 will be held digitally June 1 - 2.

Candidates need to contact a potential supervisor who is willing to support their application.

Candidates should then send the supervisor information and a CV to Olja Toljagic.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences offers funding for one extra year for successful candidates applying for the European Fellowships, to enable a total of three years at our institution.

The aim of the Master Class is to attract and train highly motivated researchers to successfully apply for an MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences as the host institution. 

The Master Class is also open for candidates applying for a Global Fellowship with our Faculty as the return host institution.
