Promoting diversity and inclusion is critical to any cutting-edge academic environment. That is why at the Law Centre for Health and Life, we would like to attract top talent from eligible PhD graduates to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie post doctoral fellowship from the European Commission.
Through these post-doctoral fellowships, the European Commission aims to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. At the Law Centre for Health and Life, we wish to seize this opportunity to mutually enrich our own academic environment, the disciplines we work in, and the career paths of post doctoral fellows.
How it works
Eligible candidates can apply directly to the Law Centre for Health and Life. (Note: Candidates may not apply directly to the European Commission for this fellowship. Fellowship applications must be submitted with the agreement of and in cooperation with the Law Centre for Health and Life.)
After being selected by the Law Centre, a candidate will have until the annual deadline (usually in October) to be mentored by one of our supervisors to prepare an application to the MSC fellowship.
If awarded by the European Commission, the candidate would receive 2-3 years of funding (salary costs and research expenses) to pursue post doctoral research at the UvA’s Law Centre for Health and Life. The post doctoral fellowship would likely start in the summer or autumn after the deadline.
