MSCA Postdocs Bootcamp 2021

In this workshop we break down detailed parts of the award criteria and also discuss how to set up your proposal with KI as your host. Both fellows who apply themselves or PIs recruiting a fellow can attend the Bootcamp.

Bootcamp structure

The MSCA Postdoc Bootcamp is a 1+2 day workshop offered to applicants who apply with KI as Host Organization.To attend the Bootcamp you should have your application account set up in the EU portal. See How to create a draft proposal and other info on MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships.

The Bootcamp is structured so that Day 1 provides you with a basic structure how to build up your proposal, you then write the proposal during the summer and attend Days 2+3 to add and polish the details. All three days are full days.

We strongly recommend that you attend all three days of the Bootcamp. If you have missed day 1, you can still attend Days 2+3 but no longer need to send in an outline. 

To be able to attend Days 2+3, see criteria and documents below. Please take into account that it takes time for your admin to check operational and financial capacity of your PI and therefore several days to sign the KI Application Assurance form. 

You may need VPN to access the documents if outside KI. If you are incoming fellow to KI and cannot access the internal documents, email me. 

For questions contact Ying Zhao.
