Re: 2019 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019)

The potential of the researcher to reach professional independence during the fellowship is not fully evident taking into account the moderate track record and personal achievements. 5 yr PhD and 2 yr post doc experience, 4 patents, 8 first author papers (2 JACS) and a total of 17 papers with a glo...

Re: 2019 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019)

Was asleep and woke up and stupidly checked my email. Got rejected (ST-SOC) with 78% which is a 10% drop from last year. That means I don't even have a seal of excellence so it has all been for nothing. This is quite a blow and I don't really know how to go on from here. On to the comments (listing ...

How are we going to get to 480 pages if results are coming out already now?

I guess nothing will happen tonight, wish you all a good night
Last eyar, after all the waiting and around 400 pages I guess, I called it a night as well and woke up with an email. I'd rather have it before I go to sleep so I can open a bottle of wine to celebrate or drink my sorrow.

Re: 2019 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019)

True that. I wanted to apply for an AHRC erc grant in the UK and they told me to wait until the last possible year /7 years after finishing PhD) to have as much experience as possible. But the MSCA is designed to allow people with less experience to get a postdoc so if people with 7-8 years experien...

Re: 2019 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019)

I think you are right. I have also 10 years of postdoc experience with tens of papers and wrote a strong proposal, the best I have ever written. I have gotten excellent fellowships with less solid proposal but now it seems that I am too aged for the reviewers. It is shit to work in science. I see s...

Re: 2019 Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-2019)

Hey guys!! But are you sure that Dreamer is not a fake? Because I contacted my NCP and they told me that the results are not available for anybody... What do you think? People who asked say that he knows their acronym and other details, so he would have to do some elaborate stuff to do that. Or may...
