Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships

University of Nottingham School of Physics & Astronomy invites expressions of interest for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF) 2023 call under the Horizon Europe programme.

Our aim is to attract excellent researchers with the potential to work on ground-breaking research projects that make a significant contribution in areas that match the School of Physics & Astronomy’s substantial and wide-ranging expertise

The School of Physics & Astronomy is one of the leading Physics & Astronomy departments in the UK and supports a dynamic and vibrant research culture. MSCA PFs are prestigious and subject to rigorous peer review, so successful applicants who can be matched to a supervisor at the University of Nottingham School of Physics & Astronomy will write the proposal in collaboration with their supervisor and with additional, expert proposal preparation support.

International mobility is essential; applicants can be of any nationality but you should be moving to Nottingham from outside the UK to take up the fellowship. Project duration can be 12 – 24 months and focused on “training through research”. These are excellent awards for career development. Researchers must have a doctoral degree at the date of the call deadline, with a maximum of eight years full-time equivalent experience in research, measured from the date that the researcher was in possession of a doctoral degree and certified by appropriate documents.

The European Commission’s next call for applications will open in Spring 2023. If you are interested in developing a MSCA-PF proposal with University of Nottingham School of Physics & Astronomy please send us a copy of your CV and a 1 page scientific proposal that outlines your proposal for a Fellowship:

  1. Scientific Proposal (max 1 page)- Provide an introduction to the proposed research undertaken in the Fellowship. Discuss the state-of-the-art, objectives, research methodology and approach. Highlight any opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaboration.
  2. Why University of Nottingham? (max ½ page) - provide details of why you wish the Fellowship to be hosted at the University of Nottingham and which academic group you would like to work with.
  3. Experience & Future Career (max ½ page) – briefly describe your research experience to date and how a MCSA Fellowship would support your future career development.

Please email your CV and 1 page Scientific Proposal to and the relevant researcher based on the research page by 9am Wednesday 7th June 2023 to be considered for development of a Fellowship application at University of Nottingham School of Physics & Astronomy.
