Applicants can be from any country but must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline on September 14th, 2022. If the applicant has never before lived in Denmark, the applicant will be eligible for special taxation scheme. MSCA follows a bottom-up approach, which means that the research fields and topics are not predefined by the MSCA programme.

The Department of Economics at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) welcomes expressions of interest from postdoctoral researchers with an excellent track record of research and publication to apply jointly with a supervisor from the department at CBS to the European Commission Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme. Selected candidates will receive dedicated support from a senior researcher, the supervisor, as well as CBS’ Research Support Office to develop their proposal and application for submission to the European Commission by September 14th, 2022. The selected candidate may benefit from travel funding provided by CBS to visit the supervisor at a Kick-off meeting (if possible) for 1-2 days in April 2022 to discuss and plan the full proposal for submission to the European Commission. If travel is not possible, online meetings will be arranged.
