About Marie Curie Fellowship

Investing in new research is a long-term investment. The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships are Europe’s investment in researchers and their development as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Actions (MSCA).

Marie-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships help scientists at different phases of their careers, regardless of their age or nationality. The research grants fund possibilities for career advancement for academics in various disciplines.


The IAEA MSCFP is open to students from IAEA Member States who meet the following entry requirements: Female candidates;

1. Accepted by or enrolled in an accredited university in a Master’s programme.

2. Preference will be given to applicants with above-average academic credentials (75% or above or GPA > 3.0 out of 4.0).

3. Researchers must have a PhD before the call date and a maximum of 8 years of post-doctoral research experience. Years of research experience and professional gaps (for example, because of parental leave) can cause the timescale to be extended.

4. Years of research experience in third countries will not be considered in the above maximum for nationals or long-term residents of EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries who wish to reintegrate to pursue their research career in the EU Member States or Horizon Europe Associated Countries.




Fields of Study

The programme supports young women studying in nuclear-related fields relevant to the IAEA’s work to advance the safe and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology such as nuclear engineering, nuclear physics and chemistry, nuclear medicine, isotopic techniques, radiation biology, nuclear safety, nuclear security and non-proliferation.

Selected students receive a scholarship for Master’s programmes in nuclear-related studies at accredited universities. They are also provided with an opportunity to pursue an internship facilitated by the IAEA for up to 12 months.

Scholarships are awarded annually, with up to 100 students selected per year depending on the availability of funds. They give consideration to geographic and linguistic diversity.
