How to apply

  1. Checking eligibility. Before starting the application process, candidates, referred to as Fellows, must ensure they meet three main eligibility criteria concerning PhD attainment, research experience, and mobility.
  2. Finding a supervisor. The Fellow takes the initiative by exploring potential supervisors through SustAInLivWork partner’s hosting offers listed below and contacting potential supervisors by sending them:
  3. Researcher approval. The supervisor arranges meetings to select the Fellow. Once the suitable Fellow is chosen, both the Fellow and supervisor sign the Endorsement that confirms the selection and affirms the Fellow’s and supervisor’s claim for the postdoctoral position at the hosting institution.
  4. Application development. Fellow together with supervisor collaborate to develop the application. SustAInLivWork partner institutions assist in providing all templates (application, guides, tips, etc.), developing administrative A form, if necessary initiate the proposal submission via EU Funding & Tenders Portal.
  5. Proposal submission: Submit the application by the application deadline (September 11, 2024). It is recommended to submit it at least 24 hours before the deadline. If needed, you can resubmit the application anytime until the call is closed.
