University of Trento (Italy) - Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships in International Studies - 2023

The School of International Studies (SIS) at the University of Trento (Italy) encourages expressions of interest from excellent postdoctoral researchers to apply alongside a research supervisor from SIS to the Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme (MSCA PF) financed by the European Commission.

Selected candidates will be offered both academic and administrative support from SIS faculty and the University Research Support Office with regards to proposal development.

The Marie Skłodowska Curie Action is a funding scheme that supports researcher mobility: European Postdoctoral Fellowships may last 12-24 months to pursue a research project, advanced training and knowledge exchange at the host institution (University of Trento- SIS). It offers a competitive salary, mobility and family allowances, plus a research budget. Researchers of any nationality can apply.

The School of International Studies draws on the diverse disciplinary backgrounds of its faculty to develop a broad portfolio of multidisciplinary research programmes that address the challenges posed by the processes of globalization and European integration. The complexity of modern societies means that no single disciplinary approach is sufficient to understand the rapid social, political, economic and institutional changes taking place in Europe and around the world. The School therefore particularly welcomes proposals that are able to cross disciplinary boundaries and build on existing research by faculty members.

Specifically, research interests at the School aggregate around four main research clusters:

• Environment

• Europe

• Human rights

• International security

Potential applicants are encouraged to browse the SIS website (www.sis.unitn.it/research-clusters) to get a sense of the full range of research activities and topics on which faculty members are currently working.

Applications to the Call must be submitted by June 16 2023. Please submit your candidature to msca.sis@unitn.it, specifying ‘MSCA at SIS’ in the subject of your e-mail.
