Marie Curie Postdoctoral fellowships, 2013


The Crete Center of Theoretical Physics is seeking applications for nominations for Marie Curie Individual Fellowships. No citizenship requirements are expected. Applicants should be holding a PhD degree in the area of theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology and have already some postdoctoral experience, especially if they originate in "third countries". The fellowships are for a period of two years (sometimes with the possibility of an extra year in an institution in the home country of the applicant). More information can be found for Intraeuropean fellowships (for candidates from member and associated states as well as candidates from third countries having long stays in Europe and for Incoming fellowships (for nationals of third countries)

Note that Intraeuropean fellowships are typically meant for young scientists with postdoctoral experience. In particular the candidate must convincingly demonstrate research independence and leadership skills.
Incoming fellowships are meant for scientists from third countries that will bring non-trivial expertise to the host group. They should therefore be experienced scientists or postdoctoral researchers with a provable quality and strong expertise in a given subject. Like the previous case they should be able to convincingly demonstrate research independence.

A detailed cv, list of publications and a research statement should be sent by email to any faculty member of the Center

Three letters of reference from senior scientists that know the applicant well should be also sent to the email address above.

The deadline for applications to the Center is June 30, 2013. The deadline for applications to the EU is 14 August 2013

Successful applicants should be able to start their fellowship between April and September 2014.
