Marie Curie Fellowships

The Faculty of Humanities focus on attracting international scholars through the Marie Curie two-year fellowships financed by EU. This has so far been done by hosting a Marie Curie master class for potential applicants in cooperation with the departments. Due to the Corona situation there will not be a master class in 2021. In stead, the university will produce a number of introductory videos which will be supplemented by an online seminar for department applicants.

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, so we can invite them for to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship to be hosted by ToRS.

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 at the online seminar, view the introductory videos and assist 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 opens 15 April 2021. Due to a new work programme in the EU it is unclear how many changes will be made. however, if you would like to see an earlier call, please contact Charlott Hoffmann Jensen.

The deadline for the application is 15 September 2021.

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 so we can send an official invitation to apply with UCPH as host. NB! In 2021, the deadline for suggesting a candidate is 25 January. The nomination should be send to charlott@hum.ku.dk, including:

  • Reason for invitation/ how does the candidate fit into the research environment at ToRS?
  • A project proposal in 2-3  pages using this template.
  • 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 before they are nominated to make sure they accept the nomination and accept to spend the time writing the proposal during the spring and summer including following the internal deadlines in the process.

ToRS research committee members review the incoming nominations and send an invitation to the selected applicants.

If you have any questions concerning the fellowships and the process, please contact ToRS research consultant Charlott Hoffmann Jensen on charlott@hum.ku.dk.
