Marie Curie Masterclass

Master Class Update, due to Covid-19

Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University is still planning to complete the Marie Curie Master Class, 2020. In case it will not be possible for candidates to travel on the set dates 12-14 of May, we will do an online version of the workshop.

Supervisors: Be aware that there are still available spots in the Master Class. The deadline to suggest candidates is extended to April 17.

The Faculty of Arts encourages associate professor and professors to invite talented young researchers to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Master Class at Aarhus University May 12-14, 2020.  

It is a core requirement that there is a good scientific match between the incoming early-career researcher (from any country) and the host environment (at the Faculty of Arts) and proposals need to satisfy the following criteria:

  • High quality candidates relative to career stage
  • Potential to deliver long term impact on the candidates career
  • Significant EU/global level research impact
  • Balanced combination of research & complementary skills training
  • High quality supervisor and host organisation
  • 2-way knowledge transfer opportunities

In order to enhance the quality of proposals, the faculty and the Research Support Office  offers a Marie Curie Masterclass on May 12-14, 2020. Here candidates are invited to meet their prospective supervisor and receive guidance in preparing the proposal. The Faculty of Arts will pay for the candidates travel and accommodation expenses during the workshop.
