The Marie-Curie component of European funding is one of the primary ways of researchers securing funding for independent research. Two of us in the Center are or have been Marie-Curie fellows. Happy to talk to people in the Center or people outside wanting to apply for Marie-Curie funding to come here. Deadlines are below. Particularly for recent PhD graduates, I cannot recommend these highly enough.
