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.

Instructions to use the data base

Please, be aware that some functions of the data base only work with Firefox.

Once, a potential supervisor has been identified through the filters available, the interested researchers will be able to contact him/her directly through the contact tab available in the database.

June 2023 - online infoday

On June 12, CIVIS universities will host an online infoday to present the opportunities offered by the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Networks programme to the CIVIS community.

The objective of Doctoral Networks is to implement doctoral programmes by partnerships of organisations from different sectors across Europe and beyond to train highly skilled doctoral candidates, stimulate their creativity, enhance their innovation capacities and boost their employability in the long-term.

Doctoral Networks are open to international consortia of universities, research institutions, businesses, SMEs and other non-academic organisations and all areas of research may be funded for four years maximum. Each beneficiary of a DN project must recruit at least one doctoral candidate and can also organise secondments for them anywhere in the world.

To register for the infoday, please fill out the online form by 12 June.

The programme of the infoday is on the CIVIS website.
