The EU-funded post-doc training programme MSCA-IF is a big success for the University of Vienna: 16 excellent researchers from 13 countries will be joining the university in the upcoming year.

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) is an EU-funded post-doc training programme in which postdoctoral researchers (fellows) gain additional skills and abilities working on a specific research project in a new environment while also transferring their knowledge within their new institution. Open to all fields of research, the fellowship is a well-defined 2 year career stage. In Horizon 2020 the University of Vienna has been the top ranked MSCA-IF host in Austria with 42 fellowships awarded.
