Marie Curie Fellowships

The Faculty of Humanities has focused on attracting international scholars through the Marie Curie two-year fellowships financed by EU in the last years. This has been done primarily by hosting a Marie Curie master class for potential applicants in cooperation with the departments.

If you would like to attract post docs to your research area/research project we recommend that you contact potential post doc applicants during the winter/ spring, so we can invite them for the coming master class. In 2018, the master class takes place 23-25 May.

If you propose a candidate for the master class, you also accept to act as the so-called supervisor (formerly scientist in charge). You are expected to be present during most of the master class program as well as assisting the candidate with the application and in case of a positive reply act as mentor for the fellow during the project.

You can read more about the expectations of the supervisor here (in Danish).

The call for 2018 has not yet been announced, but last years call can be seen here. It is expected that the coming call will be close to the previous call and the deadline will be in early/ mid September 2018.
A step-by-step guide as well as a template for the application will be send to the relevant candidates and supervisors.

Keep an eye on calls in ToRSnyt and HUMnyt concerning deadlines for nominating potential participants for the master class so we can send an official invitation. NB! In 2018, the deadline is 23 February. The nomination should be send to, including:

  • Reason for invitation/ how does the candidate fit into the research environment at ToRS?
  • A short (max 1 page) project description
  • contact information on the candidate
  • Academic focus/ short CV and present employment/ affiliation 

You are expected to ask the candidate if they would like to apply/take part in the master class before they are nominated to make sure they accept the nomination.

ToRS research committee members review the incoming nominations and send an invitation to the selected participants to participate in the master class.

ToRS pays for their travel and accomodation up to a certain amount. Participants from over seas may be asked to co-finance their travel costs. Participants in the Marie Curie master class will receive assistance and sparring on their application from the research support team on department and faculty level.

If you have any questions concerning the fellowships and the master class, please contact ToRS research support employee Charlott Hoffmann Jensen on
