The Marie Skłodowska-Curie 2021 Fellowships are part of the Horizon Europe program.

Proposals are joint submissions between the Fellow and his/her host Department/supervisor. A key objective of the fellowships is career development and skills acquisition so planned training must be addressed in the application alongside research objectives. 

Research fields are chosen freely by the applicants and all research disciplines offered at Oxford are eligible for funding.

The grant provides an allowance to cover your living, travel and family costs. Research costs and overheads of the host organisation are also supported. 

Oxford supports applications for European Fellowships (EFs); we are unable to, however, support applications for Global Fellowships (GFs).


Deadline: 12 October 2021

Eligibility: Open to post-doctoral researchers of any nationality coming to Europe. Fellowships must be for a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 24 months. At call deadline, supported researchers must have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research, measured from the date of award of the doctoral degree.

How to apply: More information on how to apply can be found on Oxford Research Support's page on European Commission research funding. Links to the application portal will be added when this opportunity goes live. 

Please contact Karen Eveleigh, Sara De Ornellas or your Centre Administrator in the first instance if you would like to apply.
