Information seminar for potential supervisors to a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellow

KTH Research Support Office and KTH Sustainability Office welcome you to a seminar on becoming a MSCA Postdoctoral Fellow (PF) supervisor.

Time: Thu 2022-02-17 15.00 - 17.00

Location: Zoom

Language: English

The MSCA PF instrument is an excellent possibility to expand your research group by a highly competent and funded postdoctoral researcher for two to three years while adding complementary skills and competencies to your group.

The seminar will provide researchers interested in becoming a supervisor for a MSCA PF with information on the fellowship programme, the requirements of a supervisor, practical information, and insights on how to write a competitive proposal from the supervisor's perspective. There will also be time for questions.

This seminar is part of theKTH MSCA-PF for Sustainability, an initiative to boost the number of postdoctoral fellowships granted to KTH by Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions under the Horizon Europe programme and to strengthen the sustainability research base at KTH.


The objective of the Horizon Europe MSCA-PFs is to support researchers' careers and foster excellence in research. The Postdoctoral Fellowship's action targets researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad, acquire new skills and develop their careers. PF grants help researchers gain experience in other countries, disciplines and non-academic sectors. The grant usually covers two to three years' salary, a mobility allowance, research costs and overheads for the host institution. Applications should be co-written by the researcher and the host organisation. MSCA PF is open to all scientific disciplines.

Visit the European Commission's website for additional information.
