NMBU MSCA Postdoctoral masterclass 2021


Two streams will be followed to recruit candidates to the program:

  1. An open call for candidates (Euraxess)
  2. Researchers at NMBU nominating candidates from their network

We would like to reach even more talented young researcher while at the same time helping NMBU researchers profiling themselves as potential supervisors. New in 2021 is that we will have an open call for candidates to the NMBU MSCA Postdoctoral Masterclass. In order to do so we need NMBU researchers to come up with potential topics and present themselves. We therefore ask interested NMBU researchers to fill in the “Form for supervisors -suggested topic” and send it to per.ivar.hovring@nmbu.no no later than 3. January. As in 2020, supervisors can nominate candidates from their network. The deadline for this will be 3. March  2021.

Supervisors are normally experienced researchers, i.e. professors or associate professors. The supervisor is expected to aid the candidate to prepare an application for an up to 24 months stay in Norway. Please see the full outline of the programme below. Contact form and application procedure for those that would like to nominate candidates from own network will be provided later.
