The Marie Sklodowka Curie Individual Fellowships (MCIFs) are prestigious fellowships funded by the European Commission. They offer a generous allowance for 12-24 months including mobility, family and research allowance. Applicants can be from any country, must hold a PhD (or equivalent), and must not have resided or carried out their main activity in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the MCIF deadline on 11 September 2019. MCIFs follow a bottom-up approach, that is research fields and topics are chosen freely by the applicants, in collaboration with their prospective hosts.
The Department of Digitalization (DIGI) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) welcomes expressions of interest from postdoctoral researchers with an excellent track record of research and publication to apply jointly with a supervisor from DIGI/CBS to Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship Scheme. Selected candidates will receive dedicated support from a DIGI Senior Professor, as well as CBS’s Research Support Office to develop their proposal and application for submission to the European Commission by 11 September 2019. The successful candidates will benefit from travel funding provided by CBS to visit the host professor for 1-2 days in July/August 2019 to discuss and plan the full proposal for submission to the European Commission. The host at CBS is Professor Anoush Margaryan.
Expressions of Interest that are aligned with one of more of the following research themes are welcome:
- Workplace learning and skill development practices in emergent forms of digital work such as crowdwork in online labour platforms
- Policy and practice implications of crowdwork and other emergent forms of digital work for pedagogy in higher education settings
