In response to the European Commission’s (EC) call for application for “Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowships 2019” and TUM’s efforts to recruit and train excellent international young scientists, the TUM Talent Factory offers to Postdocs a 3-day MSCA-IF Masterclass in order to enhance their ongoing MSCA-IF proposals. The target group are international Postdocs who are planning a research stay at TUM or want to prolong their stay at our institution.

Researchers do not need to be affiliated with TUM beforehand, but require a TUM host professor willing to support their applications. They also need to fulfill the eligibility criteria (MSCA Mobility Rule, PhD or 4 years of full-time research experience).

During the 3-Day Writing Camp (August 12-14, 2019), the participants will work individually and in groups on their proposals, supervised by specialized trainers. These trainers will give multi-stage feedback on every single proposal.

To give applicants who are not in Munich the possibility to participate, Travel Grants will be awarded to up to five applicants.

The workshop will be in English. Researchers can apply until June 26 2019, by filling the form. The participants selected for the Writing Camp will be informed until June 28, 2019. The deadline to submit your proposal is September 11, 2019.
