Marie Curie Individual Fellowship Competition
The UCL Institute of Archaeology is recognised as one of the leading academic departments of Archaeology in the UK and worldwide. It is the largest department in its field in the UK and offers a uniquely stimulating environment for research in all fields of archaeology, cultural heritage, conservation and museum studies. The Institute of Archaeology received the top score of 100% 4* for the excellence of its research environment in REF2014. The Institute was the largest submitting unit within UK academic archaeology, submitting the largest volume of research that was deemed to be world-leading.
The Institute of Archaeology is supporting applications from eligible experienced researchers for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF-2020) with an initial deadline of 8 June 2020 (5pm) for consideration of applications.
Marie Skolodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships provide opportunities for experienced researchers to acquire and transfer new knowledge and to work on research and innovation in a European context (EU Member States and Associated Countries) or outside Europe. The Fellowships offer a highly competitive salary including an allowance (e.g. to cover travel, family and research costs).
This fellowship is funded for 2 years in the first instance.
Applicants are strongly advised to make contact at the earliest opportunity with their proposed mentor at the Institute of Archaeology who should assist with the completion of their draft applications, using the templates available for this year's competition via the EC Funding & Tenders website (link below). Applicants will also be asked to confirm their own eligibility following the criteria set out below.
The internal review panel will assess applications on the following criteria: quality of the individual applicant appropriate to their career stage (peer-reviewed publications etc.), ambition and feasibility of the research proposal, fit of the project with the applicant's existing experience and with current Institute of Archaeology research.
- Research Experience: at the time of the call deadline (9 September 2020), the applicant must be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience (which can include doctoral studies).
- Mobility rule: at the time of the call deadline, the applicant must not have resided or carried out their main activity (e.g. work, studies) in the UK for more than 12 months in the preceding 3 years.
- If the fellow is resuming research after a career break of at least one year, or is a European national or long term resident returning to Europe after a period outside Europe, a modified mobility rule applies: in these cases the researchers must not have carried out their main activity in the UK for more than 36 months in the 5 years immediately prior to the call deadline.
- Please note that fellows can be of any nationality and age.
