Marie Curie Fellowships at LEC

The Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) is welcoming expressions of interest from experienced researchers worldwide who would like to come and work in an exciting, vibrant interdisciplinary research-led department alongside world-leading environmental scientists.

Researchers can be of any nationality and be carrying out work in any field of research. The European Commission offers research grants for individuals with more than 4 years research experience or a doctoral degree (PhD) through the Marie Curie Actions Research Fellowship Programme.

The main activity of an individual fellowship is a research project, developed by the researcher in collaboration with their host organisation, and designed to provide training through research. An integral part of the fellowship is training in complementary and transferrable skills, for example, research management, intellectual property rights, entrepreneurship and interdisciplinary knowledge transfer.

The relevant schemes currently open are:

We would welcome researchers with a strong publication record to contact us and discuss research ideas. For this particular call, applicants resuming research after a career break are encouraged to apply and such "career restart" applicants will be considered by a separate panel to ensure equal opportunities for all candidates.

Funds are available for visits to LEC to support the co-design of the strongest applications.

Please contact Dr Paul McKenna for more information.
