The Bergen MSCA IF- Master Class 2017/18

This program aims to recruit talented, young postdocs from outside Norway to UiB through the mobility program Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship.

The UiB MSCA-IF Master Class Program 2018

UiB is launching a pilot Master Class program (“Bergen-MSCA-MC”) for potential applicants to the MSCA-Individual Fellowship program 2018.

The aim of the program is to attract and train young and talented researchers to successfully applying for MSCA-IF with the University of Bergen as host. Candidates will be pre-selected based on their expression of interest. Promising candidates will be invited to the University of Bergen to meet with their supervisors, to attend a full course on the proposal writing and to make use of full support in the application writing process by UiB advisors.

See all research themes and topics offered at UiB for this Master Class . There is a limit of 30 candidate fellows to the MC program.

The Master Class will be organized at UiB from 02 – 04 May 2018 and it will offer an opportunity for UiB to invite talented young researchers, either through your own network or through an open call in various international networks (like EURAXESS).

All costs related to the MC program, including travel and accommodation for candidates, will be covered by the MC-program (PES scheme). The only prerequisite for full reimbursement of candidates is the submission of the MSCA IF application.

Candidate fellows and supervisors will be guided throughout the whole application process with deadline on 12th September 2018. Only those who get funding through the European Commission’s MSCA IF program will be admitted to UiB.

Please consult our information page on the MSCA IF scheme for information on candidate eligibility and details of the grant, or contact Emmanuel.Babatunde@uib.no for any questions on the funding scheme and the MC program.
