I am very interested in supporting applications from qualified applicants for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship in the fields of comparative cognition or human creativity. My animal research focuses on the evolution of avian intelligence, from ratites to corvids, but I will consider studies on other animals, such as primates, carnivores or parrots. Whether I will support such applications will depend on the feasibility of your proposal, so please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss this.
You will need a PhD in a relevant field of research (e.g. Psychology, Zoology, Neuroscience) and at least 2 years post-PhD research experience to have a competitive chance of obtaining one of these prestigious fellowships. The fellowship provides 2 years salary and research funds. The deadline for this year’s applications is 14th September 2016, but I would expect anyone who is interested to have contacted me by mid-April at the latest in order for me to assess your research ideas, and for us to complete the application in time. Please send a brief summary of your project ideas, as well as your CV and publications to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Before contacting me, please study the details of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships on the EU Participant Portal.
I look forward to hearing from you!
