CFP for Greenhouse MSCA applicants

The Greenhouse is now accepting proposals from scholars interested in applying for the EU Horizon2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships program (MSCA IF) in 2019. The MSCA IF program is for scholars who already hold a PhD to spend up to 2 years at a European university in order to advance their research and career. Participants can be at any career stage, but they should think of the MSCA IF as a training and exchange period in addition to working on their independent research project. At the Greenhouse, we are interested in hosting MSCA fellows with environmental humanities projects who would benefit from being in an interdisciplinary dynamic environmental humanities environment and working closely with one or more members of Greenhouse.

Through the University of Stavanger’s EU grants office, The Greenhouse can arrange for potential applicants for the MSCA program to attend a grant writing workshop on 25 April 2019, which will discuss the application writing process, required contents of the MSCA IF application, and evaluation of applications. We took part in this training in 2018 and would highly recommend it to future applicants.

In order to take advantage of this training opportunity, we need to receive a statement of interest no later than January 23rd. Send an email to the Greenhouse directors Finn Arne Jørgensen (finn.a.jorgensen@uis.no) and Dolly Jørgensen (dolly.jorgensen@uis.no) with a CV and project statement of no more than 2 pages that gives us an idea of what you would work on during a MSCA stay and how it would align with the Greenhouse program area.

A note about the grant application timing: The official MSCA call for 2019 will be issued in April, with an application due date in September. If selected for an award, the exchange period can start from mid-2020.
