Last year, CIVIS member universities launched a pilot initiative within the framework of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships to facilitate collaborations between researchers and supervisors. Academics of any research field were encouraged to express their interest to host a MSCA researcher by registering in our common data base. The process concluded with the identification of more than 1000 supervisors. This year, this data base continues to grow as further efforts have been made to collect interest.

CIVIS would like to encourage researchers from any age, nationality and discipline with a doctoral degree, a maximum of 8 years of full-time research experience and who have not resided in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the past three years to explore the data base in search for a potential supervisor.

The following panels have been listed:  

  1. Chemistry
  2. Economic Sciences
  3. Environmental and Geosciences
  4. Social Sciences and Humanities
  5. Information Science and Engineering
  6. Life Sciences
  7. Mathematics
  8. Physics

CIVIS MSCA Supervisors

Secondary expertise fields were added to the data base to enhance the prospects of finding the most suitable supervisor/s.
