Individual Fellowships

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) aim to support the career development and training of researchers in all scientific disciplines through international and intersectoral mobility.

The fellows carry out their own research project in collaboration with a host institution, which is indicated at the time of their application. Researchers of all ages, nationalities and scientific disciplines can apply.

Individual Fellowships provide an extremely enriching experience, that enhance the career perspectives for researchers by developing new scientific competences and gaining international and collaborative research experience.

Tenure-Track Position for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowships?

Global Fellowships are open to researchers currently within or outside Europe who want to move to a Third Country and then come back to an EU Member State or Associated Country.

The duration of the fellowship is 24 to 36 months and primarily covers the salary of the researcher. Global Fellowships are awarded to the most promising researchers, who want to benefit from training abroad (mobility rules).

The "Plan de Actuaciones en Profesorado 2019 (ES)" of the Complutense University includes the call for promotion of researchers doctors. Among the requirements for the stabilization of Doctoral Researchers to Doctoral Assistant Professor, it is required that "he/she has, at least, 3 years of seniority as a researcher hired by the UCM in a competitive public call".

The researchers who have been awarded a three-year Global Fellowship (GF) after the end of the project, with the current regulatory framework, would be in a position to meet with this condition.
