Re: MSCA-IF paternity leave in the UK

First of all, congratulations to both of you for securing funding for postdoctoral research. I know it seems ironic, but at least you have that! And congratulations on the pregnancy! I won't comment on specifics about child care or paternity leave in the UK (as I'm not qualified to do so), but I wou...

This means my net salary will be really low (5700-1200 = 4600 - 42% taxes = 2600 - 740 for health insurance = 1860 euros Net salary), which is worst than my current postdoc salary.
Any news on how much the final salary is for each country given taxes?
1860 euros seems way too low for Germany.

Re: Preparation Tips for Prospective Applicants

The outcomes of the process are so random, it's hard to tell. Lot of people get close to the cut-off one year only to find out that an improved proposal suffers a much weaker evaluation in the next call (even as an official resubmission). So I wouldn't worry about losing the "resubmission" mention o...

Re: MSCA PhD funding

I'm not sure about ITN's - and I'm in the social sciences - so I'll let someone else answer. However, as a general observation, I'd say apply even if you feel like it's very competitive. Few postgrads know where to look when to apply for a Ph.D. and tend to apply to continue where the got their last...

Re: MSCA PhD funding

Welcome :)

Just to clarify, are you referring to applying for an MSCA Individual Fellowship while doing a PhD? Or applying for an MSCA co-fund position? Or something else?

Re: MSCA Successful applications - next steps!

I've heard competing answers about this. From my understanding, first of all, MSCA IF is supposed to be your full time job, with no other work being permitted. However, I've seen people integrate teaching as part of their IF grant proposal - successfully.

Re: Marie Curie Individual Fellowship Forum

It will be sent out in a few months to all applications over a certain threshold. Last year it was 85%. There is no need to request the seal of excellence. It’s automatic.

Re: Marie Curie Individual Fellowship Forum

The idea is that anything over 70% should be funded, but because of a limited budget, they are funded based on score until the funding runs out. On top of that there is an expectation that one would run out of a budget, so a higher tier of projects that are very good but can't be funded. The Seal of...
